Hello All,

We are going to develop an IP-STB product based on embedded
Linux/uClinux. The GUI subsystem will be part of middleware which
including low layer graph engine, window environment, web browser
(supports HTML4, Javascript), etc. I am evaluating various embedded GUI
system on Linux, looks like there are only two choices can fit our

1. Microwindow (Neno-X).
Microwindow is still in developing? Is there a good web browser running
on that?

2. MiniGUI
It seems that the latest version of MiniGUI is not open sourced

Is there any other alternative? or Microwindow and MiniGUI which one is

Thanks for your input.

the choice depends greatly on the available resources, please describe
us your system :-)
BTW if you have a lot of resources you can use wxWidgets
(www.wxwidgets.org) and if you have low resources I suggest you Nano-X

Thanks for your reply, Marco. I know you did a lot of contribution on
wxWidgets embedded project. Appreciate.

But I think wxWidgets is in upper level of Nano-X, it always relies on
underlying graphic engine, right?

What I care is if Nano-X/MiniGUI is mature and keeps improving. We
can't afford using a dead technology.
