|Subject:||Thoughts on GNUStep without X11?|

Ok, here's my reasoning: I absolutely hate X11. I'm not a crank -- I've been using X11 for years on just about every different platform. Even on my SubBlade at work the GUI seem less than responsive. Maybe that's because X11 was invented too long ago, or maybe because it runs in user-space, who knows. I'd imagine that bypassing X and talking directly to the framebuffer would make the OS feel much smoother. Or maybe you'd have to port a Display Postscript library to talk directly to the Framebuffer.
I don't think this sounds too far-fetched -- Mac OS-X is a cousin of NextStep, and doesn't use X11, so why not?
