Graphics Performance

And what about the next idea?

I think the main screen in the neo is a simple app laucher with some widgets
info about the state of system components. I don't consider so necessary the
definition for all that is shown in this screen so use qvga would make it
faster and
more fluent.

In case we use an application that could take advantage to the screen
resolution we
could launch it forcing the X-windows server to change to vga resolution.
After the
application ends we could come back to the previous Xwindows state.

This could be a flexible and better performance solution...
