    KMSCON can do that, and it was written by the same person who is working on console support in systemd. They would need to add optional dependencies that are quite heavy though.

    GNOME is only using CSS as the syntax for writing themes, it doesn't have the same performance characteristics as a web browser with the DOM. It's not a performance issue for GTK+ and doesn't benefit...

    Intel contributes to quite a few open-source projects, and that includes being one of the top contributors to the Linux kernel. I'm not sure what kind of mental gymnastics you're doing to classify...
