I actually suggested using OS graphics routines.Heater wrote: ↑Thu Jul 11, 2019 6:24 amDavidS,I reject the claim that a license which allows my open source code publications to be incorporated into and distributed in other peoples closed source software is "more open". It clearly is not.The same way that the MIT license and BSD license are more open than GPL or did you forget the reason that submissions to the OBEX require the use of a MIT license (as GPL is to restrictive).
As it happens, my open source publications are so trivial and/or useless that I really don't care much one way or the other. If somebody is smart enough to find a way to make a buck or two out of using it in their closed source software then good for them.
What I do need is a license that that prevents anyone putting the blame on me when they are dumb enough to use my code and results in their house burning down or other such disaster.Who said anything about "across the internet". The performance an behavior of a web server or other IP server can be evaluated in the controlled conditions of local LAN connections.While definitely possible, very difficult to measure in a provable way (do to changes in network conditions across the internet)So what you are saying is the exercising graphics is not a good test of RISC OS, neither is a networking, and neither is multi-threading.As they are single core programs it makes it fairly simple to do (SMP is new to RISC OS so still a bit more difficult than need be).
What does that leave? Perhaps some kind of work on files and file systems.
Now I know you are just attempting to kill the thread. And we are talking about the speed of the OS, so need to keep with using OS calls for everything that is done, not extended libraries.
YES THERE IS. What does the OS offer, it offers a means of multitasking, it offers text input output, it offers a windowing system, it offers a font engine, etc, etc.That is exactly what I'm getting at. But we seem to have no way to compare RISC OS vs other operating systems.No wild claims. Would you like to see how fast the OS is (not the speed of code that does not use the OS, the speed of the Actual OS), I have offered the opportunity.
Unfortunately for both systems being in comparison OpenGL is an extension, not part of the OS.
The problem comes in what AS AN OS the OS to coimpare to offers, which is not much. So lets add X and a WM to the OS we are comparing to, now we can compare the two in a reasonable fasion.
So we compare the Windowing abilities, the graphics primitives of the two systesm, etc.
You are attempting to kill a thread. Otherwise you would actually read what I repeatedly say about what you try to nock.Nope. Just separate the reality from the hype, as I said.Or are you just trying to kill a good thread?
You attempt to say RISC OS is not a fast OS, I attempt to propose a way to show that RISC OS is a fast OS (then you go off topic and attempt to suggest examples that do not use the OS, or that I am not curently setup to test [not currently set for LAN file transfers, web relies on non-OS components]).
Though you ignore and edit out my recommendations to show you the proof, you poo poo by taking out of context. So you are attempting to kill a thread, or at least dismiss an OS that you refuse to accept a means of understanding. I could understand if you had simply said yes or no, and then in a seperate thread we could have seen the challenge if you had said yes. Though in stead you are attempting to ignore the proof.
