You cannot do high res without a GPU, it's a fact, or are you saying GPU's aren't necessary? So, you know better than industry?

A GPU is not needed for high resolution, dude. Sure, a plain VGA driver is not going to be able to go above 640x480, but a VESA driver could do better and work on 99% of PC graphics hardware.

You'd still be doing everything in software too, just how you like it.

It would be okay for low refresh rates or limited size rapid refreshes. The horsepower needed depends on how many pixels you are pushing around through rotations and stuff. They make GPUs for a reason. Modern Video games would be impossible without GPUs.

Obviously you won't get the latest 3D game without a GPU. No one is saying that.

What I am saying is that your 2D GUI could very easily do more than 640x480x16 if you'd actually take the time to read up on VESA. No GPU required.

Yeah, but God really did say so. I've entrenched it for 640x480 16 color. I made a text layer easily with the bit plane set-up. I'm trying to keep LoseThos distinct and simplicity instead of multiple modes is part of my market niche. I've gotten to like it.
