One of the biggest advances IMO : spice-server, spice-client
Note: spice-server is only available for 64bit systems.

Seriously, I'm looking at some VB options, specifically KVM, but this peaked my interest.

seabios-0.6.0-1.fc13.src.rpm
vgabios-0.6c-2.fc14.src.rpm
and got everything installed. Cooking lamb on the fire for the family now but, soon as I am finished with that I will give it all a test drive.

My biggest issues with KVM/Xen have been the VNC type interface and the lack of 3d acceleration. I haven't tried spice, but it sounds like we're on the right track. VMWare has been pretty good to me but this last release (7.x) has been problematic for me- it won't update/download the vmware-client tools for me, so I ended up reverse engineering the component file format so I could extract the ISOs (http://webtrotter.com/vmware by the way). Long story short, I'd love to save the money, but I really need professional grade windows guest support. I'm looking forward to your future developments.

Xen has a better solution: PCI-E passthrough. Think of it, works quite well and 3D acceleration is definitely going to be supported this time around :3
