Quote from: Asterlil on May 23, 2019, 01:17:35 pmIf I understand you correctly, and I haven't programmed in ASM since the days of segment-offset addressing, your design will bring about a machine that will be natively disposed to 3D artwork?

Quote from: Asterlil on May 24, 2019, 12:00:27 pmI lived pretty close to Roswell for a long time, and took you at your word. The idea of working in Unicode sounds about as daunting as learning Russian or Arabic or Hebrew, though. Not only are you learning to speak the language and master its syntactic intricacies, but you have to learn the alphabet. There really would have to be a keyboard just for programmers ... and don't other alphabetic sets (like, say, Japanese kanji keyboards) use different subsets of the Unicode symbol set now? Perhaps that future keyboard will look more like an organ, the musical instrument, with two or more keyboards (called manuals on an organ)* offset one atop the other: one for the code and the other for the oh so much more necessary comments.At the moment my laptop is considered a gaming machine, which makes it good for 3D artwork. I really like the idea of your tech flipping that, such that gamers are drawn to use the ϕEngine-based machines.*Disclosure: my mother was an organist. Organs have always had programmable function keys too, called stops.
