Qingy (Qingy Is Not GettY) is a replacement for getty that uses DirectFB to provide a fast, nice GUI without the overhead of the X Window System. It allows the user to log in and start the session of his choice (text console, GNOME, KDE, WMaker, ...).

Main features:
- It works ;-)
- It remembers last user who logged in, with focus on password
- It also rememebers last session each user chose
- Alternatively it remembers last session on a per-tty basis
- Fully themable
- A theme will look the same on all machines, independently of
the resolution
- You can select your favourite theme, or a random one every time
- Both text and X sessions are supported
- You can start more that one X session at once
- You can even start X inside a console when X sessions are already
running
- PAM support
- Support for screen savers
- Auto log-in support
- Session locking support
- tty specific options support
- Customizable key bindings
- Text mode support.

A framebuffer substitute for getty (a command-line login manager) that is much, much lighter than KDM/GDM and looks better than XDM/WDM.
