I have here another PC running VirturalBox.   It has all features as mentioned 
in my posting.

This PC is running KVM/QEMU.  It has following problems;

1) No sound on guests, Windows and Linux (Linux host has sound).
2) No "Copy & Paste" feature amongst host and guests.

The developers of Libvirt already know those problems.

I'm prepared wiping out KVM and reinstall a new virtual machine.  I don't 
expect building another VirtualBox here but wonder which virtualizer shall I 

I ran Xen (Open Source) before.  It worked perfect without problem.  At that 
time I didn't need Windows nor need sound nor need attaching utilities.

At this juncture I can't think of any other virtualizers which can cater my 
needs.  I also ran OpenVZ and VServer before.  But Windows can't run on them.  
If I can't find another virtualizer I would just keep KVM.
