"Specifically, the new virtual Red Hat Desktop will be
managed by Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization Manager for Desktops.
This virtual desktops management system, Red Hat claims, will
deliver three to five times better cost-performance for both Linux
and Windows desktops.
"The desktops themselves, both Windows and Linux, will run on
Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization Hypervisor. By using SolidICE and
SPICE remote rendering technology, this will not be yet another
thin-client approach. This will be a full-powered desktop that can
handle HD video and video-conferencing. On a high-speed network
with sufficiently muscular servers, Red Hat expects both Windows
and Linux desktop users to have a full desktop experience without
performance or feature compromises."
