Well the driver is VESA compatible, with some 2D acceleation (R200).
Having a VESA compatibility mode is great if your GFX-card hasn't got accelerated driversupport.

eCS is great, McVista and Linux cannot compete with the feeling - but at the moment I haven't got the cash for upgrading to eCS 2.0 - could be interesting to see how it runs on an X2 processor
