Still with VirtualBox, afaik one has to setup a lot, e.g. adding an ISO to an iso storage and configuring the VM. With KVM one can just create a nice shell alias and boot e.g. Fedora Test release live images with one command:

alias kvm_iso="qemu-kvm -boot d -k de -m 1024 -usbdevice tablet -cdrom"
kvm_iso F13-Alpha-i686-Live.iso

And when I kill the VM, nothing is left behind (log files, stale configs, ..).

You can completely automate this with the VBoxManage command line tool. It is slightly harder to do, but it can be done.
