  • Why macOS Mojave requires Metal -- and deprecates OpenGL

    It is built in obsolescence. Windows will run on 15 year old computers while Mac OS will refuse to run on any Mac built more than six years ago. There is really no technical reason why Mac OS could not run on a 2010 Intel CPU. These are decisions made at the top of the company. Apple does what is best for Apple and not for its customers. The reason developers are not up in arms about Apple dropping OpenGL and OpenCL is that it really happened years ago when Apple stopped updating it. Mac OS is now about five years out of date. When you look at the extremely poor library of AAA games available on the Mac, know that it is Apple's poor hardware features and lack of cross platform software support that is the major reason. Of course people don't buy Macs to play games. Pretty soon people won't buy Macs at all.
    Ya right, try running Windows 10 on a stock 15 year old PC, not going to happen!!!

    Someone needs to clean off the solar panels...they're all dirty. Any volunteers?

    Still can't wait until this is completely finished and the landscaping is all grown in. This is going to look stunning!
    Don't the solar panels need to be cleaned regularly to keep up efficiency?  That seems like it will be a ful time job there!!!
