I recently came to enjoy and use QEMU instead of Virtualbox. The Whonix documentation states “QEMU support has been deprecated in favor of KVM. The slow performance of pure emulation makes it impractical for the majority of Linux users.”.
Not yet being very experienced with QEMU/KVM, this has me confused: Isn’t QEMU using KVM anyway when invoking
-enable-kvm? Is there still a speed difference in that case?
My second question: Is translating the provided libvirt xml files into raw QEMU commands all I have to do to use QEMU instead? Could someone maybe point me in the right direction on where I can read about how to do that correctly?
