Strange idea in VAX

        No but since you're doing a PCI driver,
        a USB driver should be a breeze.

        Having a Qbus framebuffer and a USB
        keyboard and mouse would be fun :-)

        Now that I look I don't see any PCI widgets
        for the VAX 7000/10000 or the DEC 7000/10000.
        So I think PCI and TRUBOchannel are pipe-dreams.

        Pity, they would have been the easiest ways to
        get a framebuffer.

        Now if you get a TurboLaser (AlphaServer 8200/8400)
        they *do* have PCI expansion available, so you could
        do PCI graphics there. Possibly even multiple
        graphics heads :-)
