Carl - no one said you didn't mean it, and I will choose the software
that I see fit. Now, will you please answer my actual question?
Carsten has kindly offered constrast/comparison with Cairo on several
forums such as OSNews. He also offers lots of documents, which I
linked. The Smoke Vector Graphics crew presents comparison/contrast
with various projects on their web site. It is hard (from documents
only) to place Cairo in relation.
Evas, and Enlightenment generally, is massively impressive, and has a
reasonably large team, but I would like to hear a technical breakdown
from the Cairo group. Having talked to Carsten (aka Rasterman) you
probably have compared notes.
Immediate mode vs. scene graph is an obvious point of difference (scene
graphs save tedious programming labor and are higher level abstractions)
but I am looking more at baseline drawing capabilities, transformations,
etc. as well as X dependency issues.
