I hate the System. Drawing namespace in .NET with a passion.

Seeing as this is quite similar, kudos to everyone who tortures himself with this SDK

All user with fat PS3 can use this, but this lib is not for linux it is for direct lv1 and it doesnt have special access to RSX.

It isn't for official SDK, is for scene's SDK.

I've heard that somehow you can't access the main GPU in OtherOS or something like that, so, does this library use some sort of exploit/hack in order to work? ... that I would like to know.

This lib is for direct lv1 access, not from linux and I don't know the existence of any lib for the scene's PS3SDK.

This lib only draws in screen, for reading input is needed to program other lib.
