Well linuxbios can fix that. But not by sleeping. Just by booting up
really fast. early apple 2's boot up in 7 seconds. I figured that
multi gigahertz processors should bootup in less than a second. My

yada yada yada...

I just have to do something about it!

an init replacement was the first step. Then next is a cairo driven
framebuffer based editor that will solve all my problems.


Sorry that was offtopic.

Ok back to cairo. It looks like nobody is working on it. Im going to
build cairo back in a uclibc based environment and hack it up so it
will work on the framebuffer. Im going to chop up cairo-back into tiny
little pieces and write test programs for each tiny bit of
functionality and put it back together again. My main focus is the
framebuffer but i would like to use gnustep for testing.
