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.
iirc, you can use RDP from a windows client to a windows guest.
you can set the password for VNC consoles via ovirt-engine-cli then open
a vnc client (should probably make this easy via ui as well)
