    Optimus has been advertised as a feature for Windows 7 specifically: http://www.nvidia.com/object/optimus_technology.html
    "* Optimus requires Windows 7 or later"
    XP/Vista users don't get that...
  2. Yes, it's a catch-22. If the hardware can handle...

    Yes, it's a catch-22.
    If the hardware can handle low latencies (and full duplex, another requirement), it will have an ASIO driver (ASIO drivers are probably the simplest drivers I've ever written)....
  3. Microsoft doesn't really target *ANY* market...

    Microsoft doesn't really target *ANY* market specifically. I think that exactly is their strength.
    They deliver the most universal system out there. It may not be 'the best' solution for anything,...
  4. If you mean to say that it is possible to...

    If you mean to say that it is possible to overclock because Apple uses the exact same CPUs and chipsets that allow you to overclock regular PCs, then I think my response would be something like....
    ...
  5. No, that was the obvious part. It's about the...

    No, that was the obvious part. It's about the consequences of that obvious part: Apple selects hardware and software that doesn't have cycle stealing issues, hence end-users never encounter such...
  6. Well, what I meant is that you have no choice....

    Well, what I meant is that you have no choice. All Apples come with Apple motherboards. They don't even have any overclocking or monitoring functionality as far as I know, so that is one less...
  7. Strawman indeed. The point you were trying to...

    Strawman indeed. The point you were trying to make was that I was somehow 'used to' high-latency devices.
    So I pointed out that I was used to playing over real analog (pre-)amps which (at least on...
  8. I wish you hadn't mentioned that one! ASIO4ALL...

    I wish you hadn't mentioned that one!
    ASIO4ALL gives ASIO a bad name, because it tries to implement ASIO on devices that were never designed for low latencies in the first place (if they are, you...
  9. In the context in which I said it, it was clear I...

    In the context in which I said it, it was clear I was only speaking about the amp itself (seeing as digital processing does not include the poweramp/speakers part anyway).
    And yes, I'm sure if I let...
  10. Well, that's one way to put it... I was thinking...

    Well, that's one way to put it... I was thinking more along the lines of "inherent to certain aspects of the OS design" or "inherent to the design of the OS"...
    But something like that yes.


    ...

    More like you're tripping over your own arguments.

    Thing is, your 'arguments' are mostly insults, laced with some poorly constructed 'arguments' (like the one about the latency between speaker and...

    I merely mentioned Windows as one of a number of platforms that have a stable binary interface. I wanted to focus more on Android, but people kept trying to corner me into discussing Windows.

    Wow, there's a gem of selective reading if there ever was one!
    Firstly, I was talking about Android vs linux, other people prefer to focus on Windows instead. I don't think anyone actually said...
  14. Or even insiders. I would say nVidia is very...

    Or even insiders.
    I would say nVidia is very much an insider, having the longest and most successful history of supporting linux. But does Linus Torvalds listen? Nope.
    Or Ingo Molnar, a linux...
  15. You know, if most of your posts weren't pathetic...

    You know, if most of your posts weren't pathetic insults, some people might actually bother to read what you're saying, and may even take you seriously.
  16. No they don't. But what would you know? Did you...

    No they don't. But what would you know? Did you ever write a driver for any of these platforms? Because I have.



    Lolwat, Apple uses off-the-shelf Intel CPUs and chipsets, like most OEMs do....
  17. Not sure what you mean. OpenGL is a well-defined...

    Not sure what you mean. OpenGL is a well-defined standard. Problem is, it's just an API, and doesn't define how it should be implemented on an actual OS.
    Aside from that... As already pointed out,...
  18. Yes, in a perfect world, everyone does exactly...

    Yes, in a perfect world, everyone does exactly what Microsoft prescribes, and all hardware and drivers are perfect and bug-free.
    But the world is not perfect, so the moment you allow third parties...
  19. Games need OpenGL, OpenGL needs display driver...

    Games need OpenGL, OpenGL needs display driver and Xorg, Xorg and display driver need kernel.
  20. It is, indirectly. Namely, Valve depends on...

    It is, indirectly. Namely, Valve depends on nVidia's binary drivers. These drivers depend on the kernel API, and they have a long history of new kernels breaking existing drivers, requiring updates...
