  • Amazing articles covering everything about the Linux graphics stack

    I can't remember seeing either of these articles, but they're both amazing, and very in-depth.

    The newer one is Xplain: Explaining X11 for the rest of us.

    The one that came before that was The Linux Graphics Stack

    This is an introductory overview post for the Linux Graphics Stack, and how it currently all fits together. I initially wrote it for myself after having conversations with people like Owen Taylor, Ray Strode and Adam Jackson about this stack. I had to go back to them every month or so and learn the stuff from the ground up all over again, as I had forgotten every single piece. I asked them for a good high-level overview document so I could stop bothering them. They didn?t know of any. I started this one. It has been reviewed by Adam Jackson and David Airlie, both of whom work on this exact stack.
