    Apart from quoting just the first paragraph of the redmondmag article, the rest of the article is saying how Microsoft is backing down from the JS first/only approach, and that .Net/XAML are are...

    You mean MS want people to switch from WinForms/WPF to Modern UI over WinRT?

    C# is still one of the, if not the main language used for 'Metro' apps. .Net is still used in 'Metro' apps as well.

    As someone already responded, you do get a 'full screen' start screen if your on a touch device, and you can pin more things to the 'new' :P start menu making it larger and IMO more useful than Win...

    It has cloud based storage and is a a subscription service, but the programs (Photoshop etc...) are certainly not cloud based at the moment, they are full desktop programs that require no streaming...

    Well I can also use my AMD HD 7970, which is faster again than both, but this is where I hit the problems of different OpenCL compilers. As I create more difficult/complex scenes (LuxRender only...

    I was quite surprised, but when I ran SmallLuxGPU (the engine used in LuxMark) on my Intel i5 4440 with a HD4600 iGPU, the iGPU rendered faster than the CPU, and together it was (naturally) twice as...

    Sure, but why would AMD alter Mantle to every change MS does to HLSL? Didn't they base it off HLSL partly to make it easier to develop for?
  8. You do realize that LuxRender is developed with...

    You do realize that LuxRender is developed with OpenCL in mind, specifically AMD, and it still fails to run with all features enabled on GPU? The developer had to make Lux compile its OpenCL kernel...
  9. Possibly :P That is for the Cycles OpenCL Kernel,...

    Possibly :P That is for the Cycles OpenCL Kernel, not the LuxRender one, and I don't know if that would have fixed the CPU compiler. I've installed those drivers, and it does seem to run Cycles so...

    Also, in a recent test, AMD's OpenCl CPU compiler was unable to successfully compile the LuxRender (LuxCore) 2.0 program. Quite literally they couldn't make a working C compiler for CPU (since OpenCL...

    I've been forced to test my own advice over the last few days, as my desktop's PSU died.

    Have a Dell Tablet with 8GB RAM, and a 11W TDP i5 Chip (gaming seems to max it at 8W as the cooling isn't...

    If you really wanted to save power, just run one of the Intel Nucs with < 10W TDP, or the new AMD APU's with an SSD, presuming that provides enough power to do the tasks you want. Then get an energy...

    Isn't that -25 to + 45 Degrees Celcius?

    While -25 isn't anything to worry about here in Aus, the +45 could quite easily be exceeded at times during summer, especially depending where the camera is...

    Well compared to Chrome (RAM hungry and slow) and FF (Better, but UI still not suitable) on my Tablet (VP11, x86 CPU) IE11 + W8.1 are better than any alternatives :/ (On my tablet)
    No way in hell...
  15. Perhaps you should check again??

    If you read the article, or look at the actual NUC for sale, you'll see the processor listed is a Celeron N2820, or basically a 2.4GHz Dual Core Baytrail Atom

    Idk, for me (and people I know) 3 is the norm, either in longways (5760 x 1080) or vertical (3240 x 1920). I couldn't stand having a bezel in the middle of my view :/ Terrible for FPS's

    Mind you,...

    Why is the use of this hard for people to figure out??

    From my understanding (which is rather sparse in this case) are the complaints against this in some way similar (not exactly) to AMD's Mantle?

    IIRC AMD said that it is possible for Mantle code to...

    If I read the post your quoting correctly, its saying that these patches [B]do[B] contain work that is useful for more than just MIR, and parts of Wayland in this case as well.
  20. Interesting to note:

    The spot prices for some of these instances can be rather important to note as well... I use them a fair bit when doing 3D rendering for non time critical tasks.

    For instance, the C3.8xlarge costs...
