Software > Emulation Software

An emulator mimics (obsolete) hardware (i.e. electronic components) in order to run an (obsolete) Operating System.

This is different from Virtualization where there is no (or minimal) emulation of hardware performed. Virtualization software uses hardware of the machine it runs on and acts as a gateway to share resources between the host-machine and the virtualized Operating System.
