FBUI is a small, in-kernel graphical user interface for Linux. It permits you to put windows in each framebuffer-based virtual console, to read keyboard input, track a mouse pointer, and respond to typical GUI events. Each process may have more than one window. - FBUI exists to reduce the software bloat that plagues modern operating systems. It does this by virtue of its being a simple windowing system in the form of a small, 32 kilobyte driver which for some purposes may be quite sufficient. Liberation from bloat is desirable for a number of reasons that I explain in the Philosophy section. - FBUI exists to assists people who are prohibited from using X Windows because they are using resource-limited platforms such as old computers and embedded devices. On these, X is an impossible burden. However a vanilla framebuffer is often too primitive. FBUI is "just right", and libfbui makes using FBUI even easier to use by providing abstractions and additional functions. - FBUI exists to correct a flaw in the Linux operating system architecture. The traditional GUI -- X Windows -- is unlike any other subsystem of Linux in that the hardware-accelerated video drivers it uses are located within the X server, outside the kernel. Notice: normally Linux drivers and vital subsystems such as keyboard, USB, filesystem, serial I/O, et cetera are all located inside the kernel. FBUI simply puts the graphics UI driver where it belongs: inside the kernel with all the other drivers..
