I have a linux box, and any KitKat images with a high number of pixels (>700x1000 or so) never complete opening for me - I have tried to make a KitKat/Nexus 5 AVD and let it try for over a day and it never loaded. Android 4.3 seemed fine (a few minutes) and smaller screen sizes are okay in 4.4. I suspect there is some bug in the scaling as it doesn't seem to be a memory issue (32 GBs RAM and nothing but Eclipse and the AVD running. Almost no RAM or CPU being consumed). I have given up on Android 4.4 AVDs and do my testing on 4.3 at first then move to hardware for testing 4.4.
I was not aware of that. Thanks for letting us know. I haven't tried loading any images on my virtual devices yet. But it most certainly will take longer than that on my Windows 7. One day and longer than that... God that would be very, very frustrating.
Edit : When I first read Dinesh's post about it taking an hour, it seemed very unusual in today's world.
