Except that the situation with nVidia = good and ATi = bad has existed for more than 1.5 years in the past, and will likely continue.

The funny thing is that your analogy is irrelevant anyway because generally you replace video cards between 1 and 2 years anyway. You can pick nvidia now and have good drivers, and in 1.5 years if ATi has good drivers you can switch then. Candy now and forever.

Unless you don't use them for gaming, in which case both brands and driver variants (ATi, nVidia, binary and OSS) all work fine and it doesn't matter which one you pick.

Oh, god, why?

Why would you care? Why does it even matter, compared to GPU load vs idle power consumption? Are you one of those terminally retarded morons that plays nex-gen games on a laptop with the graphics settings all the way up on battery?

And, for a desktop, why power usage of DX11 vs DX9 enter into your buying decisions at all? You already know the computer is going to suck tons of power while rendering. The only thing that matters is how much power it draws when it's not being used.

First of all, good job replying to my flamebait.

You're a big man, you called me a fagot! Wow! Did it bother you to get called out?

Called out, wait, what?

Get out a bit more and you'll find more people actually do get bugged by this because they don't limit their computing to a box on a table.

Ignoring your first implication, I've never heard any of this.
Why? Because people don't actually care. It's just you. Additionally, are you implying that laptops use different USB receptacles than desktops? I have news for you: they're all Type A, and USB Type A is not a confusing port.

But we should just lay down and let the manufactures make us all just buy yet another useless connecter except when we want to do what computer are great at and maybe communicate.

Trying to read around your mangling of the English language, I beleve that you are implying that there is something that can stop manufacturers from making pointlessly proprietary ports. Enlighten us as to your plan, then.
Oh, that's right, all you know how to do is bitch and moan.

Great solution you have there; add more dongles.

I'd ask you to fail harder, but I don't think you can.

Except that no, you're wrong.

Why have you so quickly forgotten USB?

Mice: used to be serial or ps/2; now: USB.
Keyboards: serial, ps/2, AT; now: USB.
External CD drives: used to be SCSI or whatever; now: USB.
External HDDs, the same, even if some enthusiasts also use eSATA.

And I'll bet you have nothing at all to say about the hundreds of other little thing that use USB. Phones, flash drives, webcams, tv tuners, wifi, ethernet, bluetooth, and SO MANY MORE things I can't even remember much less have seen before.

USB promised to "replace the multitudinous connector types with a single connector" and succeeded.

I love how you think that this is a new thing.
For any and all types of P2P, especially the illegal kind, this has always been the case. And for all types of P2P, all the people that use it actually have the attention span and patience to filter out the garbage. I myself don't even notice it, it's completely natural.
It's only your fault that you can't figure out how to use the system.
