    Likely CPU bottleneck at that point, rather then a GPU one.

    Historically, ATI/AMD hasn't had the best OGL driver support (I still remember the 2900XT getting CRUSHED in Doom 3), and in recent...

    A bit touchy, but true to the point. OEMs have the choice of supporting Linux or not, and I'm kinda interested to see how many don't even bother, now that they have the option to.

    Which says something about the Linux Kernel, quite honestly.

    Not as of 7; they *should* automatically install when detected, though some devices may need the generic drivers installed (Printers are a good example of this). 99% of stuff these days...

    Not having to do the same work driver side and on MESA? Windows has the right idea; all OGL extensions are handled within the GPU display driver. Windows itself doesn't care; it's just another API...

    I consider the fact MESA still doesn't support any level of OGL 4 as continuing proof that the way Linux as a whole is treating graphics is simply wrong.

    DX11 is going to be around for a long time yet, simply because Windows Vista/7/8 are locked in. And not everyone is going to bother upgrading to Windows 10. Much like how games constantly...

    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...
