GPM is no more mantained, as the author thinks console is obsolete.
Is really the text console condemned to death and oblivion?
I do almost everything, from programming to music playback, under text
console, as i find it far more flexible and efficent than a GUI like X.
Moreover, i find programming the console framebuffer much easier than
programming graphic under X, and about ->10 times<- faster (even if it
depends greatly on the hardware beneath it)
Come on, console is one of the greates power unix has over windoze!
