    Phoronix: Hardware Independent X.Org Graphics Drivers

    Aspirations towards hardware-independent accelerated X.Org graphics drivers were talked about at XDC2012...

    <sarcasm>Everyone loves a know it all </sarcasm>

    I've worked with people like Ian Romanick before. All rapped up in there own little world were they *think* they know best and wont even listen to other peoples views. Ian could have at least put his rant in question form instead of just hijacking the presentation. A closed mind is a dying mind.

        as i see Lucas was making a point about offloading 2D stuff to the gpu

        im by far no expert, but i have seen applications performing a lot worse when the console gets flooded

        if that offloading he was talking about works on text too, isnt that a win for the application that need the cpu time ?

          So you push the hw deps into a library and use that as the basis for a driver...

          That's not a hw independent driver, that's middleware.

                Maybe, but who is right?

                  Wayland

                  What happens to hardware-independent X.Org graphics drivers, X.org acceleration, the Xorg state tracker and the XA state tracker with Wayland?
                  When X.org runs on top of Wayland.

                    Is "offloading" of 2D graphics to GPU still really important, considering that everyone typically has from 2 to 8 CPU cores nowadays?
