XGGI is a display server
|License||"MIT license, if not stated otherwise"|
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.
