Read this part again: "For commercial-level code... fair enough" - I agree with you entirely on that score.

I wasn't talking about that though - the whole point of demos WAS to use as many tricks as possible, to show off to your mates (and the wider world) for a few weeks, until the next bare-metal coder found a way to do something that blew yours away... If it ran on one specific variant only - so be it.

If Christ is the meaning of life then why do you cherry pick only some of his words and deeds when describing things you consider virtuous? Shouldn't you take him in his entirety?

What makes you think I don't?

You. Cannot. Be. Serious. Every week you give another example of where you ignore some of His' teachings in favor of others. While I know there are times when my actions don't reflect all of His ideals, I don't pretend to be a motivated disciple.

While I will continue to point out that Marx's communist ideals have essentially never even come close to being realized for any population over a few hundred anywhere at any time, your continued insistence on confusing communism and socialism is quite simply silly.

Trumped by your desperate attempts to differentiate them by, like, an order of magnitude.

The greatest similarity between them of any significance to this discussion is that you don't understand either of them.

National Socialist German Workers Party

Wow. Playing the Nazi card? That used to be below you.

Union of Soviet Socialist Republics.

I have already pointed out how that has no connection to socialism or communism.

Own it.

You are conveniently ignoring the fact that a political party - or a politician - can call itself whatever it wants. This is no different from Ron Paul taking on a label that falsely claims he wants liberty, or the Koch Brothers funding a party that wants to evoke images of anti-imperialist aims.
