Yesterday evening I started implementing a Java2D pipeline on top of DirectFB. Today I can already run the full Java2Demo. Yay. I save myself the obligatory screenshots, becomes quite boring as they always look more or less the same. But I must say that I quite like DirectFB. If it was me, X11 could be ditched and free desktops built on top of DirectFB. Very nice and well thought-out API with a surprising lot of stuff in it (OpenGL, video-overlay, alpha-blending, etc, if supported by the provider of course).
