I just read again that the display does "about 800×600 in color
mode". However, from the prototype I got the impression that "color
mode" means not much more than switching the backlight on, right? The
frame-buffer will still be 1200x900. Also I think someone mentioned
there is no video scaling hardware, just the optional anti-aliasing
in color mode.
So am I right in assuming that from the software's pov, it doesn't
really matter, X will always run at 1200x900x16? Has it been decided
if it will be 5-6-5 or 4-4-4-4, yet? Or is that configurable?
For optimal speed I'd like to avoid pixmap conversion, so what is the
fastest way to get bits to the screen? Is there a way to get direct
frame buffer access, or is XSHM the way to go, or something
