Turned on a Windows VM for some gaming after >1 month. Yes, it's completely unresponsive due to everything going "Aaaaaaaaaaa update now whike you have chance!". Disk has been at 100% active time for almost an hour.

Side question: is there any way to make qemu-kvm disk IO quicker? Currently it maxes out at 5MB/s random reads, and I'm using all the "basic" tricks like virtio and cache/threading tuning.

OK, my gaming time ran out as Windows finished doing all its updates. Sigh...
