The only one major obstacle of adopting XFree86 for embedded needs isThanks very much for this proposal!
The size of X is something that's been an issue with embedded devices
for some time. I'm not a graphics guy, so I didn't even know about
Can anyone comment on the current state of affairs
for the graphics layer used on embedded devices?
Is X widely used, or are other graphics systems (like DirectFB,
for example) used?
At Sony we're not shipping a lot of (any?) products with X, but if
the footprint problem was solved maybe we would consider it.
