SDL/Mesa with X11 or DirectFB/DirectGL?

Recommended Posts

I''m really interested in DirectFB, but I haven''t tried it myself. If you are trying to use OpenGL, X will often be faster since it has more hardware support (DirectFB has none at the moment, as far as I know). Otherwise, for 2D graphics, it shouldn''t be slower than X. If you do play around with DirectFB, I''d be interested in hearing of your opinion of it (speed, ease of setup, or whatever you feel like talking about).
