Re: Time to grow up

U.S. citizen here. The difference is that China or Russia can't use their information against me. The NSA can pass the snooped info (possible gained from their BFFs in the UK or Canada) to any other U.S. agency as evidence that can be used to prosecute me.
At any time in the future the database of my communications can be sifted to determine if I am a "person of interest" by whatever the criteria du jour happen to be.
Yet another Visual Studio "review" in which there is no mention whatsoever of the code generation.
Also: WinXP is still a supported Microsoft product yet the VS2012 runtime libraries don't work on it?
Here you go: ftp://get.opera.com/pub/opera/linux/1011/final/
And again no mention of code generation.
Amidst all the ooing and ahing over the newest eye candy, it would be nice to get at least the barest inkling of how this program does at its intended purpose: creation of Windows executables.
How big are the binaries relative to VS2008? Relative to VS2005? What instruction sets (remember those?) are supported by the compiler? Can post-SSE2 instructions be automatically generated in the binaries or are explicit intrinsic functions still needed? What is the relative performance of a VS2010 binary compared with the same C/C++ source compiled by VS2008 or VS2005?
Pffftt!! Some tech site.
That's likely the color management scheme, disabled by default in v3.0 and now enabled by default in v3.5.
The values for preference gfx.color_management.mode:
0 = Disable color management.
1 = Enable color management for rendered graphics.
2 = Enable color management for tagged graphics only.
The pref is set to a value of 2 by default in FF v3.5.
