Jaguar (Mac OS X 10.2) employs a technology denominated "Quartz
Extreme," apparently a 2D drawing technology for screen components
exploiting hardware rendering solutions. Essentially, screen elements
are stored as OpenGL textures and are rendered on the screen via
hardware, resulting in a speedier, zippier interface.
Would such a technology be speedy or beneficial for Morphic?
Practical? Straightforward? Can we leverage the OpenGL work Andreas
has done to put together a proof of concept?
What do you think?
