WHOAH! that looks fucking awesome! Like does it work without YAFT itself???
If so, this is super-suckless for something so useful!

I feel you.. I wouldn't even touch FreeBSD (except MAYBE for gaming) if
had perfect support I mean peripherals weren't evil, not OpenBSD fault
most of
the time.

I don't believe you!
Seriously? I had a great feeling about Vulkan because a few years ago when I
took a look at it, it seemed be program-able in C-style C++ or something like
That'd be very VERY neat!
And sinve Vulkan is open-source, one couldjust steal their code for direct
access and scrap the rest of Vulkan for something suckless :P

If it's alike C, then fine.

Well.. it has only been a year since I last felt the spirit of god-creation,
that is programming..... I am saddened beyond belief.. but I have hope.. that
one day I'll fulfill my destiny and accomplish like 100 dreams and ideas I've
come up with in that time..
It is amazing what a mind can become when lacking what it's craving most
Like I even started writing what I hate about systems, so-to make the perfect
one for me and others, with cheap AF hardware that once can DIY, of course.
Trust me when I say that roof over my head is blown-away from the amount of
rich motivation, ideas and deducements I've had.

I wish, I hope.. I research.. no one will help me but me, sadly.
