Arcan: A New Open-Source Display Server Built Atop A Game Engine

What happens when a game engine meets a display server meets a multimedia framework? Oh yeah and whereby the behavior is controlled with Lua. No, it’s not a joke, just the latest creation in the open-source world. Say hello to Arcan as a new Linux display server.

Arcan is a portable display server “built on the corpse of a game engine”, according to the project’s lead developer, Björn Ståhl.
