    Coded from scratch? No they use libraries available for the platform that ease development. However unless you use a tool like Game Maker you'll have to learn to use an API. Personally I would...

    Making the variable public though kills the entire point of accessors (and thus to a small degree OOP) - making it easier to change how a chunk of data is handled by just changing one method and thus...

    Could we have a little more detail on the computers? It could very well be the Intel video is faster somehow. The only information I can find on the X1050 indicates it uses DDR1/2 memory.

    I'm sure someone will try hacking it so that some of those features will become available for DX9 cards. Just give them a little while longer. Also I hope Spore does dominate.

    My copy of MinGW doesn't seem to do it (gcc/g++ version 3.4.5). I wonder if I'll ever see an update to MinGW again in my lifetime. They sure are taking their time about it. :p

    No it isn't. I've used it under MinGW just fine although I never did much with it. If you want it, just grab gcc-java-3.4.5-20060117-1.tar.gz and uncompress it into where mingw is.

    The BASIC stamp might seem like a good deal until you consider that the cheapest module is $29. Compare that to the Atmel ATMega32 which cost me $6.90. That's quite a difference.
