An emulator for various CPUs that supports virtualization

A review of QEMU for Windows by Felix Cheng

As virtualization software, QEMU is certainly a contender for one of the fastest.

The application can emulate operating systems under Windows such as Linux, FreeBSD, Mac OS X and others while not bogging down the system in many cases.

QEMU enables cross-compilation and debugging on foreign operating systems right from the Windows desktop without the need of special software.

QEMU supports the emulation of different processors and emulations and performs well with both 32-bit and 64-bit systems including older and outdated processors like the IBM PowerPC that Apple used to deploy extensively. It also supports ARM processors that are common in some brands of mobile devices.

Usage of QEMU and success among different hardware setups varies but emulation of most optical drives is support as are USB devices.

Features and highlights

  • Full system emulation: In this mode, QEMU emulates a full system (for example a PC), including one or several processors and various peripherals. It can be used to launch different Operating Systems without rebooting the PC or to debug system code
  • User mode emulation: In this mode, QEMU can launch processes compiled for one CPU on another CPU. It can be used to launch the Wine Windows API emulator or to ease cross-compilation and cross-debugging
