-- About OS4 version -- Quick port done by Kjetil Hvalstrand, note this port does not really work, Microwindows: Renders graphics just fine, there is some kind of problem with the event handler, microwindows does not read mouse coordinates. Nano-X: Open an display, but no application work with it, problem with TCP/IP stuff? -- General -- To build Microwindows, see src/INSTALL and src/CONTENTS. Microwindows is an Open Source project aimed at bringing the features of modern graphical windowing environments to smaller devices. Microwindows' genesis was with the NanoGUI project, and is now the primary distribution for both the Microwindows and Nano-X codebase. Microwindows currently runs on Linux, UNIX, X11, ELKS, MSDOS, RTEMS and bare VGA hardware. It uses the same device- independent graphics engine built for the NanoGUI project. Microwindows compiles a sample application and the WinCE graphics api in about 42k. The architecture of Microwindows allows it to be ported or run on a wide variety of systems. Cross-compilation for MIPS, ARM and x86 processors is supported. There are currently screen drivers for Linux 2.2.x framebuffers and Linux 2.0.x svgalib, as well as an X11 driver that allows applications to be built and tested under X11 before running on the target platform. There exists a portable 4-planes VGA driver that will run on bare hardware, ELKS, MSDOS, or RTEMS. There are mouse drivers written for bare hardware, direct serial port, Linux GPM driver, and touchpads. The Microwindows graphics engine is capable of running on any system that support readpixel, writepixel, drawhline and drawvline, although more advanced bit blit routines are provided. Microwindows features full RGB color support, optimized palette bitmap drawing, and a 3d look-and-feel. Overlapped and child windows are supported, with complete window and client area clipping. Proportional and fixed fonts are supported, along with utilities for converting any MS Windows font or .bmp file. Optimized painting algorithms are used to allow maximum response while the user is moving windows on the screen. In addition, the Nano-X server can also be built on top of the device-independent graphics engine.
