DirectFB: A new Linux graphics standard?

Author: JT Smith

From Slashdot: "Some people really dislike the X Window System. DirectFB
seems to be the answer to their prayers. Building on the framebuffer support
available in recent Linux kernels, DirectFB adds hardware acceleration, input
devices, and window management. It has been made (and LGPL'd) by Digital
Convergence as a Linux video/television solution, but it is much more than that. It
has the potential to replace X for Linux desktops."
