    * time synchronization
    * proper mouse integration within X (absolute coordinates)
    * shared clipboard support
    * higher video resolutions
    * hardware acceleration (XVideo, DRI...)
   
 You need a machine with hardware virtualization support (VT-x/Intel or AMD-V) for reasonable guest machine speed. Supporting NetBSD fast without this would be possible with a few tweaks, but is not part of this project (and maybe not even a reasonable goal beyound GSoC).  You need a machine with hardware virtualization support (VT-x/Intel or AMD-V) for reasonable guest machine speed.
