    Maybe with TrueType fonts with anti-aliasing and background wallpaper. Maybe with 144 Hz and smooth scrolling. With kinetic mouse scrolling.
    And VR. Can't keep typing in a flat screen.

    Would be nice to see a modern reimplementation of the console but this is welcome nonetheless. As a gentoo user I spend a lot of time in the console.

    Is this going to make printing text on a terminal faster? Sorry if dumb question, but not sure how to parse 'console' in this context.

    UEFI support much higher resolution modes than old VGA text mode and VESA BIOS Extensions (VBE).

    efifb supports any resolution, that your GOP (UEFI video firmware) does. However, not all video cards support every mode that the connected monitor is capable of; for example, my AMD card doesn't support neither fullhd nor 4k in GOP at all.
