Does anybody have a solution?
Yes, its called Linux :)
meanwhile it being largely ignored by modern game developers and HW
Many games servers run on Linux, and some games too now.
yes, some do, others don't...
there is a world it seems of people wishing they could run linux, but
stuck for various reasons using windows...
right now I use XP, and I wonder:
what will I do?
will I keep using XP, eventually go to vista, or go back to linux?...
I use XP on my main laptop, Vista and Fedora Core 6 dual booting machine,
and Fedora Core 4, and 5 on our servers, and a Fedora Core 6 on my Linux
laptop. Best of both worlds.
I have my main computer, on which I have WinXP and Fedora Core 5 x86-64.
problem is it is a big hassle to reboot into linux, or vice versa, so I
usually only run XP...
I think my test computer also has WinXP and FC5, but 32 bit.
sadly, at present, using linux would require going back to the 32-bit
version, for the sole reason of being able to use ndiswrapper (parents
forced everyone to use WIFI, no longer wanting wires around the
Ndis wrappers are old hat now there are many linux driver frameworks and
drivers for WiFi cards now.
well, yes, but this card was not supported.
also, it was bought by my dad (these things are in stores in which I no
longer have security clearance). he doesn't check compatibility, ... he just
buys whatever is cheapest...
if I had my own house, I would do a wired network again...
I have fixed machines wired, portable ones wireless.
well, I have all the computers wireless, for the reason that otherwise a
wire would have to either cross the walkway near the front door (the floors
are tile, if it were me I would just duct-tape them down to eliminate
tripping hazzard), or go up and across the cieling (what I had generally
done where I lived before).
but, parents are all fussy, thinking that the wires make the room ugly or
P.S. I am at present recoding GCC in C++. Doing a test conversion to see
if it is possible, which I think it is. Been at it three days now. Spent
one day doing parser.c into lexer.h, lexer.cpp, parser.h, and parser.cpp.
Lost one day in distractions. Got on today quite well. The devil is in the
supporting files as well as in the detail. I estimate it will take a
couple of weeks to get it running with a C++ "regenerating" "backend" so I
can loop it back on itself chuckin test programs and check for diffs over
second and third generation loops. Anyway its an experiment...
me, I don't use C++ much myself.
one possible justification at this point is that it is doubtful I would
write a full C++ compiler, but C is simpler.
