As they say, you get what you pay for. Customers ask us to make the changes they want -- for server use and scalability -- and KVM is absolutely the best in that area as a result. See many recent benchmarks. Usability on single desktops is, well ... we do our best. If you want excellent desktop usability, then organize a group and make the work and patches happen.
