Projects / Fresco


Fresco (formerly Berlin) is an experimental windowing system which is a logical extension of the integrated layout and structured graphics model developed in InterViews and the original Fresco project. It makes heavy use of CORBA for transparent inter-process control, and utilizes a loadable module framework to maintain good drawing speed and extensive customizabillity.
