    Pretty much this. Visual Studio's debugging/development capabilities far exceed anything else. I've had to work with GDB ONCE (frontend was GPS, for an Ada project. Choice of language was...

    There's these wonderful things called a CPU cache, register renaming, pipeline optimizations, and the like, that turn your hand-crafted assembly code into a really unoptimized mess. Unless your...

    Exactly. Implementation matters. In Linux, OGL is implemented through MESA, in Windows, though a few .dll's.

    I mean sheesh, the GPU's understand the function calls, so that leaves you just...

    Actually, compilers do better at register allocation then humans. Take the iterator of a FOR loop; you'd think that keeping that in a register is good for performance, but most times, compilers will...

    C+ allows developers to get things done without holding their hands. C++ will let you do just about anything, but it won't hold your hand to protect you if you don't know what you're doing. It's...

    You know the actual language used isn't a big huge factor in performance if coded optimally, right? The algorithms used is a much bigger factor in performance. Those algorithms might be sub-optimal...

    Stupid question: Why are upstream projects relying on functionality from the Init system? Seems to be there's a more fundamental problem at work here: one of basic kernel design.

    Uh, no. FX 8350 <> i7 2600k. Once you hit the 3770k, performance is pretty much always in Intels favor. Heck, we still see plenty of benchmarks where the i3 3220 matches the 8350, and that's just...

    To be fair, Witcher 2 is a LOT more intensive then Borderlands 2. Even on Windows, my 770 GTX can barely handle Ubersampling.

    If you go by NT Kernel versions, then yes.

    Vista, if you had the hardware requirements to run it well, wasn't that bad aside from the overboard UAC. Seven was great; first time I had a Windows OS...

    Indications are the BOTH interfaces are available. Which is what they should have done from the beginning. At the end of the day, the only difference is what version of explorer.exe you are...

    If by older you mean from a week ago before the bug was disclosed, yes.

    The argument has been "The bugs will be found because it is open source and peer reviewed". Now you have a critical bug...

    SNB is hardly old tech. I'd hope it sees updates for the next 5-6 years or so. There's really nothing on the horizon, CPU wise, that outright obsoletes SNB.

    The way something like this is handled in a Windows app is that, unless overloaded by the app, certain key combinations are guaranteed to work. Alt-F4 invokes Quit(), Alt-Tab invokes Minimize(), and...

    It works a LOT better as of Vista. I'd say it works the first dozen or so time you use it, but if you abuse it a ton, games will tend to eventually crash. But its better then it was in XP, when the...
