    Sure, except Swift is not competing with the rest of the world. Only with Android which has a virtual machine uncapable of working with an unsigned int for example... Only God knows why google chose...

    Call them whatever you like. vtables, function pointers... whatever, they're all the same. See post #45 for more info.


    Yeah, I run mine with ART too. However that's nothing more than a...

    People seem to be throwing arguments randomly...

    The problem of out-of-tree drivers is the exact same if you use C or C++.
    The problem of vtables being slow also exit in C.
    The code sharing you...
  4. I don't get it. You can already create drivers...

    I don't get it. You can already create drivers that are separate from the kernel. You can also use dkms to help you with different kernels.
  5. Ok. It's true what you say, however that...

    Ok.


    It's true what you say, however that contributes zero to developer experience or technical superiority.
    I think we all agree that nowadays you must keep developers happy to be successful.

    It is rarely a matter of performance alone. I'm not going to list all the problems as there's enough info on that already. Most of the problems are invisible to the end user, which is why there were...

    So, now that Khronos finally recognized that OpenGL is currently a big fail, everybody's suddenly happy to acknowledge that too?

    Where are the people that used to defend OpenGL with all their...

    It's actually the other way around. The eye is much more sensible to changes in brightness than in color. This is the reason why the chroma components are often subsampled (to reduce bandwidth...

    Wrong. There are virtually no cameras that store pixels in RGB order (like PNG does) and AFAIK there is absolutely none that takes pictures with an alpha channel. Storing photos with all 3 components...

    There are actually point and shoot cameras that output raw.

    OpenGL is already async. There are no callbacks that I'm aware of, however there are fences/sync objects.
  12. Memory bandwidth and latency is a major...

    Memory bandwidth and latency is a major performance bottleneck these days. Usually the CPU spends a lot of time starving for data instead of executing stuff.
    x32 ABI is useful because:

    As has...
  13. Please, if you don't know what you're talking...

    Please, if you don't know what you're talking about, just don't talk about it... If you had even read the article you would know it's not about 32 bit platforms...
  14. Without knowing the API we can imagine a number...

    Without knowing the API we can imagine a number of situations where that's irrelevant.

    example 1) imagine Mantle is OpenGL but people don't know exacly what OpenGL is yet; we could say most of...

    In theory, it wouldn't take anything. You can implement APIs on top of gallium as long as you only use concepts already abstracted by the pipe driver. That said, Gallium most likely will need some...

    I've been using btrfs for about 3 years (a PC and a laptop in single disk mode), and for the past half year or so in raid 1 mode. Never had a single issue so far.

    Oh, you look so enlightened! Would you care to make a list of points explaining what is it that systemd does so wrong at replacing the init system (explaining exacly why), and how the alternatives do...

    While I must say I'm surprised by those numbers, time deltas of each compilation step would be much more informative and comparable.

    Sorry, I wasn't specific enough. I meant streaming from a remote server; think MMO. As for the size question, it's true that it isn't a strong point, but spared space is always nice. There's more to...

    Sure, let's go back to MS-DOS era where game developers had to ship THEIR drivers for the "most used hardware" :D
