On some of the bugs that i have reported to freedesktop, i have been
asked about why Wine is making calls like XDrawSegmentand not using
Cairo to handle the 2d drawing which always provides consistent behavior
regardless of drivers.
I have also read that cairo support "X Window System, Quartz, Win32,
image buffers, PostScript, PDF, and SVG file output. Experimental
backends includeOpenGL <http://www.cairographics.org/OpenGL/>, XCB,
BeOS, OS/2, and DirectFB". So it will also works with Wayland when
this is ready :D.
So i think this is a good way to make Wine more graphic driver agnostic
and improve the behavior on MacOS without having to write a complete new
driver just for Quartz.
So i would like to know your thoughts, if Cairo could improve some stuff
or if is not related or useless to the project
