About Support  Download


RaspiEmu is a Raspberry Pi emulator, capable of running almost any ARM operating system; One of which is the commonly used Raspbian*(4) from the Raspberry Pi 1 and the Raspberry Pi 2.

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

This emulation software is meant for those who wish to test & develop compatability of their software with the Raspberry Pi 1 or Rasperry Pi 2, while putting the common command-line behind a simple user-interface.
