You're still beliebing in hearsay? It's not about eye candy, it's about
portability, versatility, accessability and speed. Also if you're a fan
of scalable fonts instead of fixed fonts (don't know about you but I
really detest that fixed font configuration hell) or live in a country

Don't know what your point is but serious persons only use a fb for
embedded devices or fun. Also the majority of users out there would be
lost without an overlay userinterface on a settopbox which sports only
slightly more features than a VCR, which was exactly what directfb was
developped for, BTW.

in MPEG2 playback than ffmpeg on every architecture...
