But not _impossible_, as the poster implied.
As it happens, I don't recall the last time I played a DVD on my computer - I have a dedicated player for that - connected to a 50" screen.
Is DX10/11 needed for Visual studio?
According to that article heterogeneous multi-adapter will work in Vista/W7 if you use XPDM drivers instead of WDDM drivers.
At least that's my understanding of this:
A user could force the installation of a XPDM driver for each of these devices, and therefore get heterogeneous multi-adapter multi-monitor to work as in Windows XP.
I currently have a Quadro FX 570 and a GeForce GTS 250 installed. Once the different drivers were installed I had no problems with them both operating - both on Vista and now that I have upgraded to Win 7. I don't know what gave you the strange idea that it wouldn't work.
From the article:
If you are upgrading to newer processors that have more cores, but slower speeds, then your applications may run slower unless you prepare them to run across multiple processors. While compiler builders such as Codegear (Borland) and Microsoft are sure to build features into their compilers to help with this speed issue, in many ways, the onus is on the developer. It is up to developers to change the design and architecture of their applications to take advantage of the added core. Sequential applications will take advantage of a single core only; if a design change isn't made, you won't gain any speed.
Main idea behind Dreaminder is to offer a place for reflection, help people figure out what they want to do with their lives and remind them of their dreams. You can also read what other people are dreaming about."
Are people dependent enough on MS for this to work in countries where the cost of a Windows license relative to incomes is several time higher than in developed countries? Will this open more opportunities for FOSS? I live in Sri Lanka, a country where MS backed off from a planned crackdown because even corporate users threatened to switch if they had to pay."
