"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."
