Embedded GUI

I came across a new windowing system package [linuxdevices.com] today that looks like an almost drop in replacement for XWindows. It claims that the system will work on a broad range of output drivers including the Linux framebuffer device. Hmmm, I wonder how well it will handle xvids via mplayer (which they have a port of)? Quote pick of the article:

Project co-founder Ali Caglar Oral said, "The project's range is embedded systems to desktops. It might be a good choice for embedded systems."

They also have a downloadable ISO that supposedly boots in seconds. Looks like I might have something (other than beer) to do this weekend.

More info can be found on the project's main site [xynth.org].
