One Line Summary

Microconference for X and other graphics infrastructure


This microconf will focus on Linux graphics infrastructure and what we should build with our shiny new DRI/KMS system. Topics for discussion should involve the future of X in Linux, integration of other legacy graphics systems (DirectFB in particular) and how to provide a scalable graphics environment across the widest possible set of hardware platforms.
