I suppose we should've noted that, slightly contrary to the test day
announcement, Spice wasn't exactly written as a direct VNC replacement
for all of VNC's traditional use cases. It was mainly focused on use for
virtualization, that is its primary design focus ATM. It 'replaces' VNC
in that specific context, not necessarily for everything you might use
VNC to do.
And that's why "Are you tired of using VNC?" don't fit in the first
Have a nice weekend.
