    Default SlateKit Base: A Linux OS With Qt5 Running Off KMS/FBDEV

    No, the whole thing is running on one QQuickView and EGLFS QPA.

    In related news, apparently RBOS, the wayland distro, got released.

    Now this is exciting news...a distro that doesn't use wayland or X for graphical display. Could this be useful for embedded systems or low-powered tablets/phones?

    Yes, thank you, that's what SlateKit project about!

    In unrelated news, mark45 once again makes unrelated comments which have nothing to do with the topic at hand.

    In related news, is there much of a performance drop because of the CPU rendering?
