Right, VMDK is not easily reusable though, for Parallels you have to perform
a few steps to reuse it.

One click solution is the goal of course. QEMU really isn't that solution
unless you can use acceleration. The speed is pretty much unusable
otherwise, and that is really only useful for testing if you are very
patient. Anyone who needs a 1-click installer also would expect reasonable
 I haven't found an easy way to get QEMU working with acceleration on OS X.
I think we are working towards a solution, just not as quickly as we would
