QEMU is an emulator and virtualization machine that allows you to run a complete operating system as just another task on your desktop. It can be very useful for trying out different operating systems, testing software, and running applications that won't run on your desktop's native platform.
QEMU has the advantage of being able to run either as a pure emulator or as a native virtual machine (on x86 / x86-64 hardware).
