I think you've been unlucky. At any rate, I find Windows XP fairly usable(*) when running under Qemu/KQemu on a fast Pentium4. The slowdown is about 2-fold. This could be a Win4Lin-ism; alternatively, it could be a known bug (sorry, can't recall the reference) that is fixed by installing WinXP SP2.
(*)Disclaimer: I am not implying that Windows is ever truely "usable"!
