Re: [proposal] Decrease X.org XFree86 server footprint
Jason Clarke <jason@...>
I think the question that might need to be asked is why are they using an Xtoggle quoted messageShow quoted text
server on a full screen embedded consumer device? If your UI fills and owns
the entire screen you can easily just use directfb or even fbdev. I'd guess
they are looking more for a way to have multiple applications share the
screen (the main UI, webkit, mplayer,...) then actually a desire to have a
full window manager environment on a small arm device.
Maybe X isn't exactly what they want, but happens to be the closest thing
Just my 2 cents.

OpenMoko and Nokia N770/800/810/900 tablets use various X servers (Xglamo,
Kdrive and now XFree86).
Various e-Book readers I looked at use Kdrive, Nano-X (which is X-like, but
not quite X) and plain framebuffer (not DirectFB).
