There's a driver other than the default video driver (Cirrus? I think) that
is supposed to be quicker for Windows (I can't seem to find the materials I
read months ago). In testing I found that this driver wouldn't support
higher resolutions, so I abandoned it. I don't run Windows VMs in
production, so I've not experimented much with it in KVM.
What I'm reading is that Direct-X support is iffy.  
Maybe someone will speak up who has worked with Windows on KVM quite a bit
more than I have.
