Java games rock!

Quoted from the recent Gamasutra article entitled "64-bit Game Development: Immediate Changes Ahead".

http://www.gamasutra.com/features/20040603/pournelle_01.shtml

"OpenGL is now a grudgingly accepted citizen. Since late in the NT 4.0 era, Microsoft hasn't wanted to support OpenGL, preferring to evangelize DirectX as the One True Way to display 3D. Between the graphics chip vendors doing their own OpenGL drivers, and the big CAD companies continuing to require it, Microsoft has put OpenGL support back into the operating system, so you can rely on it being there."


This is good right?

Yes, this is excellent news. And it strengthens the position of Java immeasurably.

yes,
good news that the sovereign was not able to force his sole will onto his vassals who sometimes even laugh at the free ...

sorry for heating up this topic but just try to understand how ridiculous this looks for anyone using a community-driven OS (before barking back). Smiley
