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. Software developer Balaton Zoltan is currently working on a new interpretation for Sam460ex PowerPC motherboards from Acube systems. 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: nongnu.org)
