quote: but it may as well be DOS because you can only run one program at a time
quote: Unity can multitask at least as well as OS X, it handles running apps in a pretty OS X-ish way.
quote: but you do have to step way out of your comfort zone for more than 5 minutes and get used to something different which is what a lot of people isn't willing to do.
quote: The serious problem with Unity IMO is that it's bloated, and I mean BLOATED. If it was faster I'd totally use it though.
quote: I won't post a link that's your homework, but yes, Unity at least since 12.04 does all of those.
quote: Of course it's not true, Unity can multitask at least as well as OS X, it handles running apps in a pretty OS X-ish way. Without being too familiar with OS X I'll take the risk of saying it probably does it a little better than OS X.

quote: Making a hackintosh can not be done anymore with out a real Mac.
quote: Linux; though, I think it's still OpenGL-based, rather than Direct3D/X.
quote: On the plus side, OpenGL optimizations have been going very well for Valve. In the two years since Steam launched for OS X they got Source to run very fast on it, and they currently have Source games running faster under Linux than they do in Windows. Granted, 315fps in Linux vs 270fps in Windows gives no practical benefits since it is already so fast, but it is still worth noting.
quote: Incorrect, they released all of those details. Hardware was a GTX 680, Intel i7-3930k, and 32GB of RAM, and the operating systems were Windows 7 and Ubuntu 12.04
quote: Source engine games use DX9, not DX10 or 11, so that part is irrelevant.
quote: The version of OpenGL being newer is also beside the point, it took months of optimizations and custom driver work to get L4D2 on Linux to go all the way up from 6fps to what they're running now.
