QEMU

(Quick EMUlator) Open source software for creating emulation and virtual machine environments, developed by Fabrice Bellard. As an emulator, it is used to run operating systems and applications written for another hardware platform; for example, running ARM software on an x86-based PC.

For virtualization, QEMU is used to emulate devices and certain privileged instructions and requires either the KQEMU or KVM kernel modules and the host operating system to provide a virtual machine environment. It is typically used to run Windows and DOS applications on x86-based Linux computers. For more information, visit http://bellard.org/qemu. See KVM and virtual machine.
