I don't know if I am really part of the target group, but I rather test 
something with a simple command than something where I don't even understand 
the basics of trying it. 

qemu is unrelated to what we're trying to show, but I think an unnecessary 
complicated command can keep people from trying it. 

$ qemu hurd.img  

Just looks more polished than 

$ qemu --cdrom hurd.iso -- ... 

And I can actually remember it :-) 

(which means that showing it to someone else becomes easier - I know I could 
create an alias, or just see the website again, or many other things. All of 
these require more work from me than having a simple command in the first 
place, though)
