Is that the only new functionality that KGI will bring? A graphical console?
I used Debian a few times with the framebuffer enabled and it was a mess on
my laptop. I couldn't even see the bottom 10 lines of the console. :) I like
my text console just fine. :)

Or does KGI also promise video driver interoperability between Linux and FreeBSD?
That would be pretty neat, but doesn't X11 already provide this? I'm just not
seeing the benefit to KGI.
