    obvious reasons

    There are a few blatantly obvious reasons why oracle would do this:

    To advertise the jvm as a viable scripting virtual machine. All scripting engines have some sort of virtual machine, but the...
  2. hollow marketing, rude supporters

    Ok so you can now build your own kernel (fancy that, i thought that was a gpl requirement anyway), but this is what they claimed in the blog post:

    Yeah, what kind of problem? None of the other magazine's benchmarking (anandtech, toms hardware, etc) had any problem with opencl apart from on the 680. And when it did run it was generally quite...
  5. It's only because it's not GPL

    Lets face it, the only reason qualcomm and other hardware manufactures are so interested in it (incl apple), is that it isn't a GPL project.
