About


RaspiEmu is a Raspberry Pi emulator, capable of running almost any (ARM architecture) operating system, from the Raspberry Pi 1 and the Raspberry Pi 2.

The Raspberry Pi is a credit card sized computer; the operating system is "Raspbian", a Debian AM variant, which cannot run on i386 (Intel) Desktops or Laptops.

This is meant for those who do not wish to fiddle with the command-line, and do not have a Raspberry Pi available or are too lazy. 

(This is 
not a replacement, as performance will vary. This is meant to allow development on Raspberry Pi projects without physical access)*


     Features
 Boots Raspberry Pi 1 and Raspberry Pi 2 *(2)
 TCP and USB networking support *(2)
 Supports Archlinux, Raspbian, etc. (most Pi operating systems)
 Multiple boot modes (command-line and graphical)

* This point cannot be stressed enough; if you want a "real" raspberry Pi, buy one from raspberrypi.org. This is a tool meant for writing and testing software, and is not an equal replacement in terms of performance and capabilities.

**
Please note that currently, 'networking' is only supported on the Pi 1.
Wolfram requires a purchase of a key from
wolfram.org to activate.

*** This is donation-ware (or "Freeware", "Freemium"). As such, you may use this free of charge, however there will be a delay in launching and some nagging.
No functionality will be removed other than that.
