Yop, of course but :
if for ui's sake OM must go for qvga instead of vga and limit possible 
rendering because of the necessity to add some fancy stuff, that is not 
the same result.

Is it ctr+alt+F12 that convert a qvga screen in plain vga ?

And the compiz stuff on a qvga screen : i really would like to see some 
videos of it.

I do have gp2x because it's open : terminal stuff is not that
