Yep , I also do not understand why people oppose GGI

some say that GGI make kernel bigger, and then they use
use X windows , how much memory does X take ?

what does the kernel size matter if people use applications
that take terrible amounts of memory compared to that what the kernel

There are plenty of reasons for why GGI is the best thing ever
for Linux, and I really hate that some people are so blinded
on their own views.

many programmers would love to have very simple low level
graphics interface that does not take too much time to learn and
is fast.

My personal opinion as an user who has used X windows
for 6 years, is that X windows is dead system and keeping
it as only choise for graphical programs and multimedia
seriously limites interest for making graphical programs
for Linux.
