Thanks to Deva for his accounts of his perception of my behaviour, especially sharing with the world. :-) Anyway back to the job at hand....

Okay so one of the main things for me is going to be that i can write apps that will be half reasonable. Half of half reasonable is good graphics. Since the gumstix is really a command line SBC and we are hacking on a display we need a lightweight layer that work well. This MIGHT be it - Thanks to James McBride for lead.

"DirectFB is a thin library that provides hardware graphics acceleration, input device handling and abstraction, integrated windowing system with support for translucent windows and multiple display layers on top of the Linux Framebuffer Device. It is a complete hardware abstraction layer with software fallbacks for every graphics operation that is not supported by the underlying hardware. DirectFB adds graphical power to embedded systems and sets a new standard for graphics under Linux. more..."
