At this time a new operating system for x86 massively parallel systems is being developed for a grant from the National Institute of Science. The OS allows free rendering of real-time brain behaviors in the operating room. Since it is not based on Linux or any other operating system designed for a windowing client (desktop) we are in need of a way to port an implementation of X to simply be portable c/c++ calls that have no external dependencies. This real-time system gets it's start as a raw kernel over the x64 implementation of AMD and Intel processors in (currently) 4, 8, and 32-cpu machines. Since the nature of the project is to use commodity hardware with a light but component-standardized OS as it's infrastructure, X is best :)
The question has now become, which project may best fit this bill? A methodology of keeping it simple, straight-forward, light-weight, fast, hardware independent (best to simply output a bitmap to a memory buffer and let another driver place it on the screen), and so forth should help drive the decision. If possible, ports of additional graphical toolsets such as Mesa32, GLUT, VRML, and others should be able to use the implementation or be adapted to it.
Thus, we turn to you, the community of knowledge-base experts, to get an opinion of how to proceed. Questions fielded generously, credit given where due, and appreciation to all of you. Please respond privately or to the group as etiquette dictates.
Many Thanks and Warm Regards,
