Description Bryan Yount 2013-07-05 18:10:04 UTC
Title: Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization Manager Client Requirements

Describe the issue:
The "Supported SPICE clients are available on the following operating systems:" list of supported clients does not list Windows 8.

Suggestions for improvement:
If Windows 8 as a *client* (not a guest) is supported, then it should be listed here. However, special mention should be made to exclude Windows 8 RT because it is ARM-based and the current Spice client is x86-based.

Additional information:
From personally testing this, I know that the touch-based ("Modern interface" version of IE10 doesn't appear to support ActiveX plugins so using the desktop version of IE10 is required here as well.

Added Windows 8.
