        If this doesn't kill the VT from the kernel, does this still have any advantages when living side-by-side with VT in the kernel?

        What advantages does this have?

        Does this accept just plain text, or does it also do ANSI coloring and stuff like that?

          Solution in search of a problem

          No, really, what's the point of this? I thought all the ADHD C programmers were busy making init less reliable. What gives?

            You can still have your VT.
            I love the VT too.
            kmscon doesn't want to entirely get rid of VT, just move out out from the kernel to userspace.

              Why name?

              Why name it fblog and kmscon?

              Why not fblog, fbcon or kmslog, kmscon?

                HTML and CSS

                Hey, think if someone make a console with HTML and CSS instead of ANSI / VT220?

                  The console belongs in the kernel. I want to be able to type even under memory pressure/swap storm.

                    Maybe still possible in user-space with process priority / nice levels.

                    Giving the process the highest priority or real-time priority.
