Also, thanks for this information. The Cubietruck kit looks promising
and is available for about 90 Euros here in Germany. I think I'm going
to get one in the next couple of days. :)
I've written quite a bit about the Cubietruck on my blog:
My particular interest is having KVM working on ARM. However even if
you ignore virt, these are still relatively cheap and full-featured
development boards. Make sure you get the CP2102 serial cable, and a
micro SDHC card, and strongly consider a small (even second hand) 2.5"
laptop SATA disk.

virt-p2v converts physical machines to virtual machines. Boot with a
live CD or over the network (PXE) and turn machines into KVM guests.
