Took a hiatus, thought something would change, no, a news piece about Vulkan and the creators of it are being slandered for supporting various platforms including, surprise, Windows. Just like Android Wayland and X11 which are also supported using their own data structures and API calls.
    You are just thinking too deeply.

    Please take deep breaths and relax.

    And seriously, refrain from igniting the forum on every thread. This part here was absolutely unneeded and an obvious call for flamewar:

    Time and again Open Source fans continue to embarrass themselves with their blind hatred towards anything proprietary and a severe lack of intelligence and common sense. You'd think that the person who signed up at Phoronix in 2015 would be a little bit more intelligent but nope, nothing.

    birdie, you should be embarrassed by your posts here.

    The original poster went out of their way to specifically include both win32 and drm to make it clear they were talking about the concept of platform specific code and not going after any specific platform.

    And then you go and accuse them of blind hatred? WTF?

    "allows for querying DRM (Direct Rendering Manager) properties of physical devices"

    I don't even understand what you meant by "w32" - Win32? There's nothing pertaining to Windows in this Vulkan release either.

    The rational mind has 2 choices to react to a post which is allgeded to be not carefully thought out.

    1. Ignore it, because it is not worth to be processed further.
    2. Respond to it and try to correct it / request an explaintion in a respectful manner to start a meaningful and fruitful follow up discussion.

    Since not meeting one of this criteria the tautological conclusion in this case, your mind is not very rational. Hence how can your mind be able to determine what is a rational, well elaborated thought in the context of intelligence or common sense?

    I don't know, why you read my post as me being an open-source evangelist full of hatred...?!
    Birdie tends to be hostile against most. Except against nvidia, of course.

    I understand that it is technically needed, but it's kind of awkward to see w32 or drm extensions in a platform agnostic api...
