I would agree with this assessment. Spice while nice is an issue with windows and older
linux/etc guests as well.
A few issues until the qxl paravirtual guest drivers are in place in the guest:
- windows guests --> erratic mouse movement and controls = install via KBD and add
drivers by hand/kbd
- fix for windows guests = use templates or load from images that have been syspreped or
- older linux guests = ? EX: custom spins or old 2.4 based stuff
- non linux guests bsd/solaris/android = ?
Just my 2 cents, but VNC or vrdp(VirtualBox) has worked well with all of the above
when it concerns remote consoles.

Subject: [Users] oVirt console plans
There are plans to enable other types of console for oVirt? Access by VNC or RPD?
There are many SO (windows) that access by SPICE is a little tricky.
VNC seems to be a more portable.
