I'm just curious. How is that "capturing" different from doing
appropriate adjustments to X.conf on a linux system which have been
suggested as possible workarounds?

I simply don't understand why companies that make hardware like this
wants to close the api like that. What gain can balance the loss of
potentional users (= buyers)?

Great stuff. Can one just snap stuff/objects out of the vibrez_pure
build and add it else where? Also, apart from the wee intro text on
