So I am arguing with some moron on Bohemia Interactive Forums about whether or not Vulkan will be a good alternative to DirectX. This guy spouts about how Apple is the .....well, you just have to read it for yourself I guess.
Vulkan may or may not be going anywhere. Apple, the prophet of tech, has spoken: http://www.extremetech.com/gaming/20...an-to-the-curb
The same guys who fucked up the OpenGL 3.0 release so badly that it took
years before anyone would even consider OpenGL again. The same guys
who released awful Vulkan pre-alpha footage with 2006 graphics running
at something like 15 FPS
---The Khronos Group is what he refers to.
Wrong. It was not the total rewrite that developers were promised. Something tells me all those developers who were outraged didn't remember wrong.
You are aware that Vista was screwed by the OEMs who stuck it on 2
GHz Celerons with 512 MB of RAM that had no business even running XP,
right? You are also aware that people were bigoted against Vista on
sheer heresay, right? That was proven by the Windows Mohave ads.
And to move to more recent fuckups...Valve, creator of the epic failure
that is the Steam Machines, which they've semi-officially killed by
announcing the Steam Link, also supports Vulkan. Valve, the company
whose Steam Machine program showed that they didn't understand their own
history let alone console history, and who dropped the ball big time
with the OEMs: http://www.maximumpc.com/how-steam-m...ut-steam-2014/ That should say it all about Vulkan.
My comment about Apple being the prophet of tech is justified. Remember
when Jobs told us we wouldn't need optical drives one day, and we
laughed at him? But he's dead now, so that's why I said based on Apple
alone, Vulkan may or may not be going anywhere.
