  Description     : A tiny window system
 With embedded systems gaining high resolution displays and powerful
 CPUs, the desire for sophisticated graphical user interfaces can be realized in
 even the smallest of systems. While the CPU power available for a given power
 budget has increased dramatically, these tiny systems remain severely memory
 constrained. This unique environment presents interesting challenges in graphical
 system design and implementation. To explore this particular space, a new
 window system, TWIN, has been developed. Using ideas from modern window systems
 in larger environments, TWIN offers overlapping translucent windows,
 anti-aliased graphics and scalable fonts in a total memory budget of 100KB.
