Re-Imagining Linux Platforms to Meet the Needs of Cloud Service Providers
"Today DisplayLink is taking steps to bring its USB display
technology, formerly only available on Windows and Mac, to Linux.
DisplayLink's chips enable one or more high resolution displays to
be connected via the standard, universal USB 2.0 connector. The
library released today enables the creation of Linux software
– X Servers, drivers, and other applications – which
will work with the growing universe of products using DisplayLink
"The library is provided under the GNU Lesser General Public
License v2 (LGPL), enabling software to be ported by the community
to cover the widest possible range of processors, platforms, and
applications. This ultimately enables companies to create products
which will work on the full variety of Linux devices like netbooks,
notebooks, mobile Internet devices, mobile phones, embedded
displays, embedded devices, digital signage, and more."
