QEMU (which stands for Quick Emulator[2]) is an emulator that replicates the functionality of various hardware devices. It is mostly based around the Linux environment and runs via command line, although several third-party GUI launchers are also available. QEMU provides support for hardware/software-based acceleration, which includes (but is not limited to) KVM, HAXM, WHPX and HVF, and formerly KQEMU.

On Linux, QEMU has multiple graphical user interfaces such as virt-manager or gnome-boxes.
