RE: CPU graphics capabilities.
No, we do not use it.

Basically, there are some important limitations to the 2D accelerator with respect to memory needing to be in certain configurations (which waste ~1MB more RAM for the end user), incompatible drawing routines (only supports lines, blits and pixels of certain limited types), the inability to mix rendered fonts with the screen window without going through ridiculous hoops, and a few other things from memory.

Basically, it wouldn't get us (or you) much in return for the effort to getting everything working properly.


Although I work for HP, the views and opinions I post here are my own.
