About Virtualization
This site blogs on x86 virtualization platforms and has a archive containing documentation and whitepaper links.
A graphical debugger interface for Bochs. Description, downloads, screenshots, a discussion forum and news about current releases.
A dynamic binary translator that runs programs on architectures they were not compiled for. It does this by dynamically translating the machine code of the programs to be run to machine code for the native architecture. Documentation, screenshots, downloads.
Bochs IA-32 Emulator Project
An open source emulator for all popular architectures and operating systems.
An addition to Bochs that connects to an emulated OS over a network using the RFB protcol used in VNC. Provides news about the application and lists available releases.
A collection of scripts and programs to be used together with the Bochs-emulator. The main goal was to provide a Unix-like interface to the emulator and to enable access to Bochs disk-images from outside of Bochs.
A page providing some additional information about running bochs on Windows. Provides a registry-file to start bochs with double-click on the configuration-files.
