No matter how valid the arguments of those who favor OpenCL are, Google just answers with FUD.
We are doomed.
"Typical examples of commercial licensees include device manufacturers embedding Mono in hardware where the user is not able to independently upgrade the Mono virtual machine from the source code"
This rules out Android and iOS. Unity has a free version but also has restrictions:
Unity Free, which include the free platform add-on products, may not be licensed or used by a commercial entity with annual gross revenues (based on prior fiscal year) in excess of US$100,000, or by an educational, academic, non-profit or government entity with a total annual budget for the entire entity (based on prior fiscal year) in excess of US$100,000.
So, again, make sure you are doing your research well, because you might end up in an unexpected situation.
Mozilla's ASM.JS is much better idea and much closer to a real-life usage scenario, but Google itself is not doing enough to promote it and their support is half assed (even though It would definitely benefit them).
Of course, how else would one make code portable between platforms? Yet their support for using their native Java API from C or C++ is horrible. JNI is unsafe and crash prone and the NativeActivity is so limited that barely anyhthing can be made with it.
Next time there are elections you can vote the national socialists if you want more labor protectionism, see how it goes.
1) Large sized American companies open offices overseas and hire foreigners there, which are cheaper than H1-B workers. They also hide their headcount info very well by many different methods. Travel a bit around the world and see the size of IBM, Oracle, Ford, etc offices there.
2) Medium sized American companies hire small sized foreign companies, which are most of the time incorporated in the US too (In Delaware of course), because they are cheaper than small sized American companies.
So, what you believe is the solution to your problem is actually just fighting for breadcrums while someone else already came and took your cake and ate it. The truth if you have trouble getting a job, you are either underqualified, irrelevant or unaffordable, so pardon my single tear for you.
The fundamental problem is that Americans think they are the best at way they do, because they do something that no one (or at least they believe no one) else does outside America. Americans have a huge pride and pisses them off to no end that someone from the outside can come into the country and do a better job than them. Period. This is the root problem with H-1Bs and everything else is indirectly linked to this.
I always hear the same arguments coming from Americans regarding to H-1B or Outsourcing, like "They just bring those workers because they are cheaper, so it doesn't matter if they are worse!" or "They sent to India but those guys are terrible at doing their job!".
To understand why you already lost, you have to accept the fact that other people is as good as you or better outside America. I'm not talking about bringing Mexicans to do construction work, I'm taking about scientists, engineers, etc. There is PLENTY of birllant people outside, and guess who do they work for? Their local companies and governments? Some might, but they will work for the highest bidder and that includes American companies and American government (through companies). Most of that people is in countries where the standards of living are cheaper or much cheaper, and with an entry level American salary they are rich, have their whole family and they don't care about H-1Bs.
That is the people responsible of less jobs for the Americans, and you have no idea how many are there, probably more than americans themselves. Remember that I mentioned at the beginning of the post that I travel often to the USA? Guess why. America makes it very easy for foreigners to open an American company.
So, complaining that H-1Bs are responsible for the loss of jobs is like blaming a cold for the death of a patient with HIV.
In fact, if you were not short-sighted, you might even see the positive side of having foreigners come and work in american soil. One foreigner will take away at much one job, but one foreigner can also create many jobs, and they don't need to be Elon Musk or Satya Nadella.
But no blaming your problems on those inferior immigrants. Right. I can tell you that there is plenty of jobs and plenty of people willing to invest in endless amount of opportunities in America, Been in many countries and no other country compares to America in this regard, your country is the best.
Also met and have known of more foreigners living outside America taking these opportunities than there are individuals under H-1B.
So, if you are worried about your job or unemployment, it definitely is because you either are not qualified, relevant , or affordable enough. That's the hard truth. America is a free country and promotes free trade with every other country. Vote for the national socialists next time there are elections if you don't like this.
