Maybe make it more than one option?

 

I use VMWare, Virtual PC, and Hyper-V. I use Hyper-V more than any other, however.

I have used Hyper-v, VMWare, Virtual PC and Virtual Box. However I use VMWare exclusively now.

I changed this to multiple selections as most that use virtualization use more than one platform at one point or another.

 

I myself use virtualbox, vmware, and hyper-v regularly. I have some clients using Virtual PC for XP mode also.

Once I had to install Windows 2000 to be able to use SQL Server. It is nearly impossible (or very hard) to install it in XP.

 

Also for gaming MMORPG I installed also (Multiple accounts) now the game (MU) can run itself multiple instances of the game.

I have used VMware, Virtual PC and Virtual box at some point. All worked equally well for my use. Currently using Virtual Box on Ubuntu. No particular reason.

I use VMWare at work currently and have used QEMU in the past. Also, you may want to change it to KVM/QEMU as KVM appears to be more well known and uses QEMU.
