What is QtEmu?

QtEmu is a graphical user interface for QEMU written in Qt4. It has the ability to run virtual operating systems on native systems. This way you can easily test a new operating system or try a Live CD on your system without any troubles and dangers.
QtEmu has been tested on Linux, FreeBSD and Windows (2k, XP).
QtEmu is available in the following languages:


You can find the source code and also binaries for Windows on the SourceForge.net download site.

If you are familiar with Subversion, you can also checkout the latest (probably unstable) version of QtEmu from https://qtemu.svn.sourceforge.net/svnroot/qtemu/trunk/qtemu.
