  Long list already from others but a couple of other things that are
nice (dont know if qemu has these today, but didn't used to)

   (i) Variable size image for the VM
       - it grows to accommodate need

  (ii) Easy to duplicate VM image (with UUID change)

       So its easy to deploy images on same or different computers

 (iii) All VM data is stored in user home

        This means installing a new OS does not negatively impact VM's

  (iv) Control over the network

  There are some cons - I have had it go crazy and exhaust memory - I
have had problems deleting an intermediate snapshot causing troubles for
later snapshots - but overall its easy to use and generally works.
