The Dink Network

Ric's Profile

Peasant They/Them Canada
I'm a factory worker in Alberta Canada. I Have 4 kids, two of whom are trying to learn how to make a game. A bit too young yet though.
I've been away a long time, but somehow the Dink network still feels like home.

Ya, for Vista they figured a way to hobble open GL so that thier DirectX finally works better (by comparison). Also they let the movie moguls dictate how movie files should run in the OS. Last I heard each frame needed to go through the bus in multiple passes to do it. Net result; even if you're allowed to have a movie on your computer, it will be choppy and use all resources.
Even now I have Linux on a second partition (dual boot), and whenever I need good performance I use it. For most things its just as easy as windows, and its secure enough not to need a virus scanner. Who needs Windoze anyhow
