 To run Guix in a virtual machine (VM), one can use the pre-built Guix VM image
 distributed at
address@hidden://alpha.gnu.org/gnu/guix/address@hidden@var{system}.xz}
address@hidden@value{BASE-URL}/address@hidden@var{system}.xz}
 This image is a compressed image in QCOW format.  You will first need to
 decompress with @command{xz -d}, and then you can pass it to an emulator such
 as QEMU (see below for details).
