|In |reply to a post reply to a post that was itself a reply to a post which among many other things suggested that Mono is nowhere near being a credible solution. Promit said "This is just the part where I leave the thread, because the person I'm talking to is an idiot."
No. Not amongst many other things:
Yes, amongst many other. The quoted material was cropped for berevity of that. The quoted material was but one sentance out of 5 seperate paragraphs
of the original post to which the intermediate reply was to. Which Promit dosn't even make a single comment directly on
.The entire contents of the post that was being replied to by the post that Promit replied to
(linked because the whole thing is a bit much to post here, what with it's own quotations of paragraphs of material and all).
That's what I'm doing, is it?
Seeing as you're American, I assumed that English was your first language, so you were deliberatley misunderstanding me. If that isn't the case, I apologise.
You're right on my native tounge, but I've only
heard "(un/non-)viable" used in absolutes in contexts where "(un/non-)doable" is equivilant, or magnitudes
more difficult than what's considered "acceptable" in situations where "acceptable" has been relatively well defined (that is, totally out the window of being a possible comprimise), or in violation of some uncomprimiseable mandate
I'll give you the benifit of the doubt that you've only ommited #4
That's kind seeing as I'd have to have violated the laws of physics to take your 4th point into account.
I'll have to take your word for it.
|I've already posted a direct example that could lead to the Tao framework being better suited for a given indie project than MDX.|
The Arena Wars team switched to MDX - so they thought MDX had enough advantages over OpenGL to outweigh the cost of the switch. Hardly a recommendation - in fact I'd say it indicates the opposite of what you're trying to argue.
Hardly a recommendation indeed, but definately a solid indicator of viability
. Given that I could easily see myself doing the same thing in their place soley for the sake of learning another API
makes it seem a shakey argument at best
against it. Certainly an indicator to try and do a little further research if I was leaning towards using the Tao in my next project to find out if MDX had more advantages, or the Tao more disadvantages, than I'd been aware of, but little more to me.
