Red Hat actually opened up the SPICE protocol yesterday during their Virtual Experience 2009 event. Somehow I missed that. Have a look at the press release if you are interested... as well as their site to house the new open source project - This seems to have caused some buzz in certain corners of the virtualization websphere (does anyone still use that word?) but so far no one has said what it could mean for us run-of-the-mill Linux users looking for a good, fast remote desktop protocol. I asked a couple of questions on the fedora-virt mailing list and received some informative replies.

Once SPICE becomes general purpose, assuming it performs even slightly better than VNC (the only thing needed for it to be successful on most open systems), it will become like OpenSSH has become... the de facto standard used by tens of millions of users of open systems.
