    I'm sure people at EA, Microsoft, Sony, etc. are praying for Valve to do that. It would seriously be the stupidest freaking thing that Valve could possibly do.

    With a few exceptions, every major AAA game engine in the last 20+ years has been written in C++ (the holdouts are all in C). Case closed? :p

    C# works very well at the indie/hobby/low-budget...

    Cairo is not something the committee is actually planning to incorporate. It's just something they're investigating. You know, that thing that rational people do _before_ making any kind of...

    BSD doesn't make being shut down any more likely. Assuming you meant "closed up," one might note the trajectory of certain permissively-licensed projects recently compared to their GPL'd...

    Jump onto a "normal" gaming forum and most of the people even thinking about a Steam Box are planning to put Windows on it after they buy it, seeing it mostly as a good way to acquire a low-cost...

    Clearly a lie. Everyone knows that without GPL licensing no corporation would ever contribute to a project. It's a plain fact, just like 2013 having been the Year of Linux Gaming.

    That's NVIDIA G-Sync. It's currently only available as an expensive mod to a few monitors that works only when paired with NVIDIA GPUs (and - I assume - the proprietary driver).

    You do realize that Gabe Newall himself is also a former long-time Microsoft employee, right? Valve wouldn't even have gotten far off the ground without the millions he made during his years at...

    More around GL4.3. GL4.4 is a bit closer to D3D11.2.

    The GL versions very weakly map to D3D versions, however. D3D9 had plenty of features not in GL2.1 and D3D10 has features that weren't added...

    C++ AMP on Linux

    Bringing C++AMP Beyond Windows via CLANG and LLVM (via OpenCL and SPIR)

    Also, for all the compiler stories on Phoronix, how is there not a dedicated compiler sub-forum?

    C++ AMP open specification.

    And if you don't consider that "open," you should admit that "OpenCL" isn't open either given that it's produced by a closed industry consortium with zero community...

    Aside from not really solving all the problems on Windows... you want every copy of LLVM to double in size so that you can bootstrap from source?

    The real problems is that even new versions of...

    Short version: neither me nor our chief graphics dev even heard about it until this week. Could be cool, could end up another historical artefact, no idea.
