Gigi Burdo has started working to emulate/virtualize AmigaOne x5000 motherboards on other PPC systems using QEMU. The current release supports Linux, but Gigi Burdo already confirmed that he is working on AmigaOS 4.x and MorphOS 3.9 support. The current log is optimized for Apple Power Mac G5’s. QEMU is a very fast generic and open source machine emulator and virtualizer. It offers full-system emulation and is able to run operating systems for any machine, on any supported architecture. The virtual machine can interface with many types of physical host hardware. These include: hard disks, CD-ROM drives, network cards, audio interfaces, and USB devices. QEMU does not depend on the presence of graphical output methods on the host system. Instead, it can allow one to access the screen of the guest OS via an integrated VNC server. It can also use an emulated serial line, without any screen, with applicable operating systems. Simulating multiple CPUs running SMP is possible. (source: Facebook)
