I do not see why there should be things that can be done on one
platform and on the other not. Actually I think that platform independency
is very important for GEM.

I am not a specialist in graphics, but for me, YUV,RGB etc is just a
different way of handling images, which boils down to additions,
multiplications, etc...

Can you explain how the Operating System comes into play here ?
Or is it the processor rater ?
