from what I've seen of the working systems ... I don't believe it
will, I connect in with rdesktop and VNC to the Windows server, but
the graphics doesn't feel accelerated.

Again, I don't believe so ... but others might prove me wrong.

KVM does what I need it to, and can quite happily handle 10
rdesktop'ed users running the Accounts system (that is using a Linux
Pervasive SQL database engine in another KVM instance) quite happily,
without them realising that they are on a virtualised machine.

I wouldn't use it for playing games, and I'm not sure what the audio
output would be since we don't like the accounts dept enough to give
them that ;-P but it's significantly better than the old Windows 2003
server on non-virtualised hardware.
