<!-- do we need to note trademark somehow? -->
+

=== Spice Framework for Desktop Virtualization===
+
http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Features/Virtio_RNG
The Simple Protocol for Independent Computing Environments (SPICE) is used for client-server communication and enhances interaction with virtual machine guests. Spice adds a QXL display device to QEMU and provides drivers for this device for both X and Windows.
+
 
+
The Spice framework for desktop virtualization
+
aims to provide a complete open source solution for interaction with virtualized desktops.
+

+
 
+
=== Xen to KVM Migration ===
+
virt-v2v is a command line tool that enables Xen domUs (ie. guests) to be migrated to use KVM.
+
Users with Xen guests can try out KVM. Users can also migrate from Xen to KVM for its enhanced ease of use.
+
 
+
For more information, refer to:
+
* http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Features/Xen_to_KVM_migration
+
 
+
=== Other Improvements ===
+
==== Virtualization Technology Preview Repo ====
+
The Virtualization Preview Repository exists for people who would like to test the very latest virtualization related packages. This repo is intended primarily as an aid to testing and early experimentation. It is not intended for 'production' deployment.
+
 
+
For further details refer to:
+
* http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Virtualization_Preview_Repository
+
 
+
=== Xen Kernel Support ===
+
The <code>kernel</code> package in Fedora 14 supports booting as a guest domU, but will not function as a dom0 until such support is provided upstream.
+
 
+
The most recent Fedora release with dom0 support is Fedora 8.
+
 
+
Booting a Xen domU guest within a Fedora 14 host requires the KVM based <code>xenner</code>. Xenner runs the guest kernel and a small Xen emulator together as a KVM guest.
+
 
+
{{Admon/important | KVM requires hardware virtualization features in the host system.| Systems lacking hardware virtualization do not support Xen guests at this time. }}
+
