9 x 3.5 = 2032?

2 x (2^12 - 4,089) = 7

9 x (9^12 - 4,089) = 282,429,532,392

As you can see from this simple mathematical example CCP will release DX11 support for Eve sometime during the 282nd millionth or so millennia.

I hope this answers some of your questions.

But you are right of course. Wink DX10 was only invented so at least a few people would use vista.

Will this be during the summer or the winter expansion of the year 282,429,534,392AD? I will have to buy a new system before that time... :-/

I agree, and im not happy with Win 7 either, even if it runs nicely. I simply loathe the new toolbar and Start menu. Progress. Bah. Stupidity I call it! Might end up going back to Win XP really. insane isnt it..

Good luck with that when driver support for XP is canned in 2 or 3 years. It isn't MS that's going to the problem, it's the hardware companies that'll make you switch.

Why change anything for the change itself? many dont like it. And it is I who pays their salaries by bying their OSes. Not to mention theres no real alternative for us who dont like it. heck, they could at least make the old one optional, but nooo. So its a step back for my part. And many others I know.

its also stupid comparing an increase in number of megabytes with a software change. While the first one icnreases storage nothing else, the OS change changes the way you work. Thats a difference! For me, its like changing from working with a computer with a harddrive to working with a computer with CD storage and booting only. Stupid

havent they stopped supporting xp, or will soon? so I guess not having security updates for an unsecure o/s is no big deal then?

Stop trying to use it as if it's an XP start menu and toolbar. Once you get into the new mindset you'll find it's a better and faster way of working.

Personally, having gotten used to it, I dread each time I have to use an XP machine now.

I use XP at work, Vista on my wife's computer and 7 on my own desktop.

Out of all three, 7 is my favorite.

Using your logic, I assume you still use the three pound brick they used to call a "cell-phone" from the late 90's.

Change in itself is meaningless, progress is good but progress does NOT mean having purty colours and flashing lights/arrows pointing at stuff "look how COOOOOL this is!!!!".

I like my operating system to STFU, stay in the background and do as it's told without using tons of cpu or memory and without doing it's utter best to 'help' me by being in my face the whole time. I use the old, simple start menu from ways back because it gives me what I need without acting like a clown about it.

More isn't automatically better.

I don't think DX 11 will bring much to the table that Eve can take advantage of, to be honest. Sure the Tesselators may be useful, depending on how they do LOD at present but if you want to remain backwardly compatible with XP (which you do!), you're going to have to ship the LOD versions in any case, so what do you gain?

I was given a floppy disk in school to store all my work on. They got locked away in a practically bombproof box at the end of the day. Good times.

Now I submit uni reports that would take 10 of those disks Neutral

Proof that uni work is now too hard tbh Twisted Evil

Oh for gods sake, learn to turn off the stuff you don't like.

More options actually is better, it allows differnt people to use the same OS and tailor it to their individual taste.
Being too lazy to learn how to tailor it to your needs is your problem, not the OS's.

I think I still have some 10 inch floppy somewhere*. Those were the days when a floppy disk was floppy and had a paper sleeve to store it in.

*from back in the days built in green screens were the height of tech.

Actually, 10 was probably invented to help handle what they wanted to do with the Vista OS.

Furthermore, Shoukei, you haven't been too much in the loop then if you think Windows 7 is crappy.

You may not understand this, buy buying something from them does not suddenly make you majority shareholder. In fact, it doesn't even make you above the guy who owns 1 share.

The first floppy was 8 inch and they've only gotten smaller since. Unless you're thinking of a different 10 inch floppy, in which case you have my sympathies. Wink

Considering the whining that resulted from changing the Shader Model requirements....

Well lets just say I can see a few decades from now people still going on about how awesome XP is and how they don't plan to upgrade any time soon.


Never could figure out the whole XP love thing though. The logic is just baffling. Pointing out to everyone that you don't need new features and refuse to pay for them, as if anyone really needs (or cares) to know that. It actually makes me wonder sometimes if MS could make a fortune just boxing up the current XP and renaming it XP 2 or something. Can just see millions rushing out to get it, because it adds no new featues and is just like XP!

What I find really amusing are the people that said the exact same things about Window XP. Going on and on about how Windows 98 (or Windows 3.0 for that matter) was sooooo much better and XP was just a rip-off.

.... wonder if it's the same people. Shocked

unfortunately, any MMO is a team sport, and we can't go on till the overwhelming majority of us are 7(and vista, but i don't like saying that word anymore). the best we can do in the mean time, is insult and ridicule people with XP, that's right! don't let them in your corps, tell them they suck every day, set up gatecamps for only those with XP YARRRR!!
lets start now, you suck XP users!
