This is true everywhere. There's no Linux distribution I've ever
heard of that improves on this. It'd be nice if it were configured
to use the functional but pathetic 16-color plain-VGA X server out
of the box. Anything more than that *has* to be complicated
though, because the OS doesn't have access to the BIOS, so it
always has to diddle the video hardware directly.
This seems like a reasonable concept -- any way we could work such an
option into our current offering?
