Hmm, i remember how super l33t the Command & Conquer (first one,
tiberian dawn) installation program was. I reinstalled it several times
just to show my friend's how cool it was.
Now wouldn't it be cool to have such a thing for an O/S?
And why stop there, we could even have sound support for soundblaster
cards! (or if we try different modules a wide range of sound cards).
I made enoch or if it was redhat/mandrake start mpg123 while booting
once, very nice. :)
And about the 3D stuff, is there 3D support for fbdev? Maybe some Mesa3D
software rendering or something?
At least there's GTK for fbdev.
