>Well, that's interesting. The state of desktop OpenGL on Windows is pretty awful at the moment. The antiquated WGL APIs make it difficult to control when your application enters exclusive fullscreen mode, and as far as I know, it's impossible to control latency or get any kind of presentation feedback with them. You also can't make UWP apps that use WGL. Google's ANGLE, which is used to implement WebGL in Chrome and Firefox, is a lot better, and it lets you do fancy things like render OpenGL ES content to a D3D11 texture or to a DirectComposition...

>design a laptop where the keys don't press against the screen and leave marks while laptop is closed
>people bitch about the screen not pressing against the keys when it's closed
What the fuck is wrong with you people? I personally think this is an amazing design since most my laptops get square marks on the bottom half from when it's closed.
I don't even eat on my laptop and I get shit like this happening after a year minimum.
How(Or I should be asking "where") do you learn these languages like APL? Just google and shit?
Also, it seems like there's a lot of advanced algebra implemented, how good do you have to be at algebra/calculus?
I'm sorry for being that guy but help me out, /g/entlemen.
I'm looking to buy a laptop soon. Currently stuck between 5 models.
I'd use it mainly for programming, watching movies in bed & shitposting outside. I have a desktop for muh gay men & home-use but I'd need something portable.
My biggest priorities are reliability, portability, battery life & linux support. I understand they're all different but I'd appreciate any input.
1. Thinkpad T430 or Thinkpad X230
I'm not sure whether there are any advantages of getting the T430 apart from the larger screen. I've heard that the build quality on the x230 isn't as solid and that X-series doesn't use the same materials as the T-series. I know the display isn't great on either of them and I might try to replace the screen for an IPS display.
3. Asus UX303
I've had a low-end Asus before (X550DP) and it wasn't too bad for its price. However I'm not fond of their flimsy build quality and awful customer service. The Zenbook has got decent specs but doesn't seem to be too popular here. Can the chinks be trusted?
4. Dell XPS 13
Quite pricey but is it worth it? I might look for a refurbished one.
5. Macbook Air 13"
The meme laptop.
Feel free to tell me to kill myself and suggest a superior laptop not listed above.

I've owned consoles since the GameCube days, and never owned a Gaming PC. All of the sudden I'm extremely interested in building my own PC, with an emphasis on gaming and it will also be used for light photo and video editing and school work. My question is, what is so much better about PC gaming compared to console gaming?
Will I still enjoy the PC gaming if I'm mostly playing by myself?
What's the biggest amount of lines you've compiled on your first try without any typos or missing commas or anything?
>120 line C program with no warnings
>say what the hay and upgrade to windows 10, despite it destroying my pc last time, had to call Microsoft to fix
>the theme is hideous and it's fucking with Firefox and JPEGview
Is there anything I'm missing or should I go back to 8.1 asap? Sorry, you guys probably get this question every day.

What scripting language do you use?
I want to convert a bunch of old projects I wrote in java into a scripting language and then toss em on the web.
What language does what, and which one do you prefer.
I'll name some popular ones I'm interested in, and I hope you guys can guide me to make the right choice.
Which one will it be /g/?
pic always related
Not gonna lie, I was leaning towards either of those.
I'm not necessarily looking for something easy, but rather something that will make it efficient and work almost everywhere.
What is the best language and why is it C++?
Now you're getting it, anon
tabs vs spaces
Tabs for indentation, spaces for alignment.
That, and with tabs you can always tell your editor how many spaces a tab should be worth. For example I like to code in Ruby with 2-space indentation, and my colleague likes to use 4. And we get to work on the exact same code.
Using spaces also takes up less disk-space, not that is particularly matters much these days.
Am I insane for thinking that this looks nice?
redpill me on this
sure thing gorhill, im sure we can just blindly add this to maintain our "freedum" because you couldnt implament it into the proper add-on....of which theres already 2 different versions filled with confusion
