(There's no video for QEMU for Windows - PPC emulator, runs Mac OS 9.1, 9.2 + OSX 10.0 to 10.5 yet. Please contribute to MR and add a video now!)
QEMU is a very versatile and extremely broadly supported open source virtual machine emulator. In 2016, QEMU could finally achieve what has never been possible before: emulating Mac OS 9.0.4, 9.1 and 9.2.2 (albeit still it's quite slow and the sound support is kind of buggy at the moment). Note that QEMU can also emulate Mac OS X 10.0 up to 10.5. At some point in the near future hopefully, QEMU will fully replace SheepShaver, but at the moment, SheepShaver still runs faster in most situations.
Advantages of using QEMU vs SheepShaver:
These bundles were put together by 'that-ben' and are intended to be the easiest possible for beginners. Just launch the 'QEMU - Mac OS 9.2.2.bat' (or 'QEMU - Mac OS X Tiger 10.4.11.bat') file and wait 30 seconds for Mac OS to boot up. Nevermind the yellow screen with a VRAM partition not found error, it will go past this without any problem. The Mac OS 9 package contains a 1GB disk image on which Mac OS 9.2.2 is already fully installed. The Mac OS X package contains Mac OS X 10.4.11. BTW, if you need a larger disk image, you can grab one instantly from here: Blank hard drive disk images (3GB HFS up to 30GB HFS+)
Networking is fully functional thanks to the sungem driver that's already pre-configured in these downloads. Right out of the box, it will network through your host machine but on its own subnet branch. The virtual machine's IP will be like 10.0.x.x. Your Windows host IP would likely be something like 192.168.x.x but what's nice is that the virtual machine can still tunnel back to your host machine's subnet branch. So, for instance, you could perfectly well make a server/client environment between Mac OS 9 in QEMU and your Windows host machine.

Pre-installed software in the Mac OS X 10.4.11 package includes:

USEFUL TIPS WHEN USING QEMU:
Note: If your version of QEMU only compiled the i386 and x8664 programs, you will need to recompile. OpenBIOS may not be included, so you'll need that too. Go to the terminal and type: qemu-system-ppc -M mac99 -m size-hda disk.qcow2-cdrom macos9.iso-boot d 256 MB of memory is recommended. Press enter and Mac OS 9 will boot from the disk.
In this article, we will examine the KVM and QEMU allow to use virtualization technology on Linux systems and how to install them on Linux systems.
How to Use KVM and QEMU
What is KVM?
KVM (Kernel-Based Virtual Machine) is an open-source and virtualization solution for Linux kernel. KVM provides a complete virtualization solution by enabling hardware acceleration on processors with Intel VTx and AMD-V technology.
In addition, KVM requires QEMU to use full virtualization capability.
For more information on this virtualization solution, visit the website: https://www.linux-kvm.org/page/Main_Page.
What is QEMU?
QEMU (Quick EMUlator) is an open-source and complete system emulator. You can run and use systems such as Windows and Linux on the QEMU emulator program. This virtualization solution was also developed to work on different hardware platforms and provides a Hypervisor Type 1 virtualization solution using KVM for hardware acceleration.
QEMU can run ARM software on an x86-based computer. An example of an ARM software is the operation of an Android emulator on Eclipse software used by Android software developers. Click here to learn more about what ARM is.

What’s the Difference?
Now let’s explain the difference between these two structures. These terms often used together.
The difference is that KVM is a virtualization solution for Linux systems. QEMU creates a GUI for the KVM.
A virtualization solution with QEMU requires a KVM.
How to Install it?
Configuring KVM/QEMU on a Linux-based Ubuntu, Debian, Linux Mint, Fedora, Kali Linux and openSUSE systems is simple and easy.
When creating a new virtual machine after installation, you can select KVM and QEMU as Virt Type.
Running it on Ubuntu 18.04
For installation on Ubuntu 18.04 (Bionic Beaver), first, open the Terminal by pressing CTRL + Alt + T and follow the steps below.
To install it on Ubuntu 18.04, type the following command in Terminal and press Enter.
NOTE: The Libvirt-bin package split into two parts in version 18.10, so execute the command below to install it on Ubuntu 18.10 or 19.04.
Press Y to confirm the installation, then press Enter.
After installation, open Ubuntu Launcher Find and run Virtual Machine Manager.
You can check the Virtual Machine Manager version in Help / About.

You can watch the video below for installation on Linux / Ubuntu 18.04 and also subscribe to our YouTube channel to support us.
Running it on Ubuntu 18.10
Ubuntu 18.10 (Cosmic Cuttlefish) is currently in beta. You can follow the above steps, in the same way, to install it on this release.
- ping -c 2 www.google.com
- sudo apt-get install qemu-kvm qemu virt-manager virt-viewer libvirt-daemon-system libvirt-clients
