Graphics are provided through the (non-performant, but reasonably standard) VESA linear framebuffer interface. At present there aren't any vendor-specific video drivers provided, though this is not so much a design choice as it is the result of limited manpower and time.


They have higher than 640x480, but it's no good without the speed of a GPU. They're never going to have all GPUs. I am a realist and stuck to 640x480 because God said and because you can do 60fps with no GPU. Theirs is nonviable. They probably get 4fps.

A neat thing happens with a fixed size for everybody. It is joyfully simple.

Trust me. There's a reason there are not 100 Windows rivals. Everybody does what visopsys does and it's nonviable.
