  1. I really think many ware way too wrapped up in...

    I really think many ware way too wrapped up in this right now to think clearly Swift exists because it leverages Apples existing infrastructure. In a literal sense it was probably easier for...
  2. yep, they even work on a Mac! One has to...

    yep, they even work on a Mac!

    One has to find balance in life! You can not sustain an economy on free software and frankly you can't assure the types of innovation the world needs via free...
  3. I really believe people are trying to wrap...

    I really believe people are trying to wrap reality here. Even if you are writing your code to POSIX standards you still are " locked " in to that standard. However most app developers realize...
  4. Well obviously at the moment you wouldn't choose...

    Well obviously at the moment you wouldn't choose it if you programmed something other than an Apple device. For one thing the language isn't even complete yet.

    But let's say Apple does open...
  5. Total BS!

    You have no evidence to defend that statement. Any rational person would have realized that Objective C is going no where fast and is a difficult or maybe better said tedious, environment within...
  6. Open sourcing the language would only be of value...

    Open sourcing the language would only be of value if it is documented publicly like C & C++ are. That is the language standard is managed via a standards body, with that standard freely available...

    Your post is hard to follow, I assume English is a second language.


    It will most likely be supported on all new "A" series chips moving forward.

    You do realize that Apple has hired a huge...
  8. Google has lost but Software development has won!...

    Google has lost but Software development has won! This means you can apply the type of license you want to an API to protect it. This is a good thing, especially in the open source world. It...
  9. Mantle works if only a few game developers adopt...

    Mantle works if only a few game developers adopt it. This idea that something has to be 100% adopted to be successful is nonsense.

    Yeah not good now if you believe their testing but look back...
  10. It isn't worst. The big problem I have with...

    It isn't worst. The big problem I have with this discussion is people reading too much into what is happening here. In a nut shell Metal provides an API destined for a different user base. You...
  11. The problem with OpenGL is that it has a lot of...

    The problem with OpenGL is that it has a lot of stake holders not even remotely involved in the gaming industry. They do not want and can't afford rapid changes to the APIs nor the reliability of...
  12. Isn't that like saying Direct X won't have much...

    Isn't that like saying Direct X won't have much of a future? Here is reality, four big game engine developers are already committed to Metal, that right there assures that Metal will be successful.

    It is a server where potentially you have many processes and threads running at once.
    Even applications are highly threaded on servers so until inaction of cores isn't a problem. In fact server...

    Remember when they say low power it is relative to server chips not laptop chips. If you take quick guess at power with each core running at say 500 milli watts that would be 24 watts for just 48...

    Nice!

    I'd like to see more of the world go 64 bit only.
  16. Baloney! This is all about performance nothing...

    Baloney! This is all about performance nothing more.
  17. This is pretty much what people at Apple has...

    This is pretty much what people at Apple has said, Objective C has pretty much ran its course as a technology. It is a rather old technology too, close to 35 years old now.

    It would really help...

    You do realize Metal is for Apples A7's at this point and very likely the coming A8. AMD has nothing to do with this, Metal is simply a software solution to performance on A7 based hardware.

    I have to wonder what BS will come out of your mouth when Mantle runs on Linux and there is a mad rush to use it.

    So you don't believe somebody that has actually worked with Metal?
