What I desire is a simple, portable system. Colour screen, Good Windows manager 
(along the lines of BeOS or KDE), optional keyboard, easily extendable, and 
with a built in development environment. Something the size of the Toshiba 
Libretto.. *not* a PC, not M$... a bash shell... I dream anyway.

I'll look into it. I don't know off the top of my head, but I believe there is 
no use of templates. The API, as far as possible uses plain ANSI C++ without 
many extensions. It does use Multiple Inheritence in places, but sparingly.
