    Name        : qemu
    Product     : Fedora 21
    Version     : 2.1.3
    Release     : 5.fc21
    URL         : http://www.qemu.org/
    Summary     : QEMU is a FAST! processor emulator
    Description :
    QEMU is a generic and open source processor emulator which achieves a good
    emulation speed by using dynamic translation. QEMU has two operating modes:
    
     * Full system emulation. In this mode, QEMU emulates a full system (for
       example a PC), including a processor and various peripherials. It can be
       used to launch different Operating Systems without rebooting the PC or
       to debug system code.
     * User mode emulation. In this mode, QEMU can launch Linux processes compiled
       for one CPU on another CPU.
    
    As QEMU requires no host kernel patches to run, it is safe and easy to use.
