Hmmm, can't see the results yet. All the other QEMU fans must be refraining...

Anyway, besides the fancy GUI, what makes VirtualBox better than QEMU?

I was right! Here's proof:

Code:
    [root@archvm ~]# lspci | grep "VGA"
    00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: InnoTek Systemberatung GmbH VirtualBox Graphics Adapter
    [root@archvm ~]#
(On a side note: I finally got an Arch install in VB! YAY! )

Virtual Box does it for me. But I haven't tried them all.

VirtualBox running on a so-called "headless" machine. That is, a machine with no mouse/keyboard/monitor (remote access only).

Wow!! VirtualBox spanks the competition on this one! Why do you think that might be, eh?

Because it's the new hotness for desktop users?
I like it - I probably have 40 VMs running on it. Doesn't have any enterprise features to compare with VMware yet, but hopefully Oracle will run with it.

Where does Wine fit in?

Where does Wine or CrossOver Office fit in to this?

I had no idea VirtualBox was so popular (among LQ voters, anyway).

FWIW, I'd point out that, according to Sun's/Oracle's docs, the FOSS version - VirtualBox OSE - is not the one that currently supports virtualized USB.
