XGGI is a partly accelerated display server for X which uses the General Graphics Interface (GGI) API and LibGGI to do hardware-independent graphics and input. It supports 8-, 15-, 16-, 24- and 32-bit modes output to multiple monitors on any LibGGI target that has a pixellinear DirectBuffer[jargon], and should run in any resolution the target can support. XGGI has been successfully tested on the KGI, X, fbdev, svga, DGA, lcd823, and tile targets.

The ability of XGGI to run on itself via GGI's X11 target makes Xnest superfluous.

XGGI 1.6.2 was based on XFree86 3.3.3. It featured a little acceleration but was the first Xserver with true multihead support and it did not require root privileges.

New features in XGGI 2.0.0 over 1.6.2:
