Thought you might be interested in some hypervisor speed tests I have run. They are based on the time Win 7 Pro install takes to complete 'Expanding Windows files', which as many of you know can be very sloww using KVM on many distros. All run with two CPU's active and 2Gb RAM except the native ones which had 8Gb.
Fedora / KVM - 29:40
Native from DVD - 14:00
MS Hyper-V - 12:30
Native from HDD - 7:20 (setup started from Server 2k8)
CentOS / KVM - 7:00
Interestiing result! It wasn't fixed that way I really didn't know what the outcome would be. I just needed to find some way of deciding which distro to use as a desktop virtualization host, all else being equal looks like that is going to be CentOS then.
