In what sense is QEMU not "software like vmware or virtuell [sic] box that can do this" ?
VMWare and Virtual box do not emulate the processor - only the rest of the system. As such they can only run X86 based software. Qemu emulates the processor as well so it can emulate an ARM based system regardless of the processor type of the host system.
Yes, I am, of course, well aware of that. Which is to say that QEMU is much more powerful and useful than VMWare/etc (*). So, it was funny that the OP seemed to think that QEMU wasn't what he was looking for (**).
(*) By at least one metric. There are, of course, other metrics one could use, including that used by the OP (see next comment). In any case, as far as we all, here in forumland, know, QEMU is the only option if one is looking for software to emulate the Pi.
(**) Apparently, the most important thing to the OP is having a fancy "management" GUI front-end on the emulator. By this metric, QEMU fails. Alas.
And some folks need to stop being fanboys and see the forest behind the trees.
