Ok if you embed tuns of full-sized graphics in your word document it could become huge. I know about the other things.


Oh yeah for the VM I forgot, it would run Ubuntu Linux and Wine in Ubuntu, not Windows. (that way it's free)

Heh, the point about stuffed emails reminded me of a time when some people would send empty emails with the entire body in a Word document – without any formatting too :roll: .


Of course, Apple isn’t particularly worried about desktop gamers migrating away from their platform, as they know very well they missed that boat; but they can more than compensate those losses with the mobile market (which they’re planning to to desktop).

As bad as it is for retrogaming, building more walls around their garden works perfectly well with that strategy. Besides, UWP is designed as a closed ecosystem too. It could be argued that closed ecosystems have been the normality for most of video gaming history.

As for Vulkan, there’s always MoltenVK (and DXVK); it’s not the same as a native implementation, but still an option.


Edit: in other news, Phoenicis already has a partially :D
