I haven't tried qemu on Gentoo yet - my previous testing (with or without 
kernel module) showed a dramatic lack of speed (at least when powering a 
virtual machine running Windows).

I'm a supporter of open source, but there *are* closed source programs that 
perform better sometime (note that there also are closed source programs that 
perform worse...)

But I'll keep an eye on quemu - that by the way I believe is free but not 
really open source, but maybe I'm mistaking.
