    Again, I was satirising the position which is being taken against the (actually harmless) title of this article, not genuinely suggesting that you should not be expressing your opinion.

    Frankly, I find the fact that you think I should self-censor to be deeply offensive. I trust you'll keep your hateful, offensive, bigoted opinion secret from now on? [/satire]

    Usually not. So? I fail to see where you established that this necessarily implies hatefulness of any kind.

    I wasn't calling *you* a bigot in that first line - I was lampooning the position of those who accuse people of racism and bigotry for mere trifles.

    Nope, don't see the problem. Maybe it's because I lack an underlying association of "pointing out someone's black/gay/female/chinese" with "being those things is bad". It's just things they are.

    This is pretty shameful - if you want free commercial games at least have the decency to pirate the Windows version and submit bug reports to Wine. :P

    I keep trying to find a comprehensive source for whatever progress the radeon devs have actually made towards this, but other than the handful of mailing list posts back in October, I've not been...

    I completely agree. Thankfully, I'm not quite so cynical about AMD's current position on this. They've come a long way in implementing what *actually* matters as far as long-term support is...

    Do we have any official sources on whether or not other GPU manufacturers will be able to implement Mantle on their own hardware without having to pay AMD a license fee? i.e. is Mantle going to be an...

    Well... that's not quite true. The fact that you're willing to purchase older hardware means that others buying newer hardware are more comfortable doing so, and at slightly higher prices (because...

    The field of scientific computing still uses Fortran (usually to the 2003 or 2008 standards) because it's very easy for a compiler to optimise, and it's very natural to write array-oriented code...
