 xv6 compiles using the GNU C compiler,
 On OS X, which doesn't use ELF binaries,
 you must use a cross-compiler.
 Xv6 does boot on real hardware, but typically
-we run it using the Bochs emulator.
-Both the GCC cross compiler and Bochs
-can be found on the <a href="../2010/tools.html">6.828 tools page</a>.
+we run it using the QEMU emulator.
