@djsundog Probably related: Even C isn’t as “close to the metal” like it used to be because no one understands the actual hardware. It’s all too complex, too proprietary, and everyone has too little time before the release cycle ends
@cypnk @djsundog it's so weird how our current hardware is basically risc, but with a complex microcode-assisted operation transformation frontend so it can pretend to be cisc, plus crazy instruction scheduling stuff to workaround the fact that you can't compile targeting the cpu's real pipeline (there's so many different implementations that targeting one would be counter-productive anyways).
@eldaking Um... yeah, kinda, now that I read about it. Somehow, I think Factorio has less technical debt in that regard.
