The problem is not the time it takes to launch.... if not when you benchmark graphic primitives like: lines, fills, bitblt, etc.Laurent said:My understanding is that it's not Xserver + Xlib that is slow to start but the billions of libraries KDE/Gnome rely on that are just layers above Xlib.
At least a few years ago (read: long before Qt and glib) X started quickly.
Some tests in NEO1973 shows X11 with an overhead of 50% vs framebuffer.
Sure that more layers above that will make it slower... (this is the price you pay for abstraction)
