    I think not; ease of coding trumps all else. That's why DX displaced OGL on Windows, and why people have been complaining about OGL for over a decade now. Everyone will support the spec, and put...

    Pretty much. The way i use them:

    C: Low level programming (HW communication, typically)
    C++: Serious programming
    C#: Need to get a GUI app up and running quickly

    For most end-user stuff, I...

    Good to hear OMP is probably in 3.7. We'll finally get some apples to apples testing. I fully expect GCC to surrender the performance crown by 4.0.

    I could care less about what it can do graphically, since we know its going to be about the same as DX12 or whatever else gets developed. What matters is how the API is structured. If it's not as...

    *waves* Though at least we have a few of us with 2008.

    Oh, and we need VC++ 6.0 because we have a few projects that simply don't compile without it. Easier to keep that around then figure out...

    Looks like LLVM/CLANG has basically caught up the GCC in non-Open MP benchmarks, with the two trading wins.

    LLVM continues to push Linux into the modern age, kicking and screaming the entire way.

    Technically, you can run 16-bit DOS titles. Windows .exe's are not supported by DOSBOX. But since most titles from that era happened to have both DOS and Windows runtimes, this is usually moot.

    ^^ More or less spot on. Intel i3 CPUs are more powerful on average, though their frame times aren't consistent at all, due to being, you know, dual cores. In that regard, no one other then Intel...

    So in other news, DX12 hardware is starting to hit the shelves, and API is basically ready to go, and OGLNG isn't even defined yet. Way to stay behind the curve Khronos.

    The problem I've seen, is even when people point out Linux's flaws, the initial response is to deny anything is wrong.



    That's what we're doing where I work; We target Ubuntu, not Linux. And...

    Runtime libs can override the system ones on Windows too. That's why Windows typically ends up with a gazillion versions of the MSVC Runtime Library installed, since every game wants to install and...

    Here's the problem: Developers like me don't want to waste time debugging someone else's code. We have enough to do on our own without having to figure out why "some feature on some hardware"...

    Xaero, I'll actually go one step farther: I'd argue that as of Vista SP1/7, a clean Windows install is more stable then a clean Linux install. Say what you will about Microsofts design choices, the...

    A cache miss occurs when the CPU checks to see if the data it needs is located in the L2 cache. If it isn't there, it needs to grab it from L3 or main memory.

    This would make sense. If you are...

    Silly question, why ZSNES? It was great in it's time, but Snes9x (or more specifically, forks like Snes9x GX) and BSNES/Higan have passed it by.

    It happens even on OSS; someone changes something, some application is reported as breaking, either app or source get updated to fix the problem.
