    Virtualizing Win 8

    Just wondering if anyone has got a Win 8 or Server 2012 VM running under KVM/QEMU on Ubuntu?

    Why would you want too?

    Just kidding : )


    Virtualbox seems to run it ok, seemed a little laggy at first, but a restart seemed to clear it up.

    Other then just checking it out WinXp is prob the better windows to emulator for actually doing something.

    Done a bit more experimenting and it seems that Win 8 cannot be virtualised by KVM yet because there are no VirtIO drivers written for it yet. Also no Spice driver written yet either.
