Okay, so I understand you did not intend to garner ire. That’s fine. Nor do I.
|it could be some kind of generalization. There exist Turing-complete programming languages with no graphing ability.|
I hate strawman crap. Please don’t.
|Complaining my "dismissive tone" looks as if you regard reasoning about my dissimilar viewpoint as aggressive.|
So, let me explain my problem here.
Let us imagine someone we all have met: the mechanic. This is the guy who loves messing with motors, and actually has a big engine block in his ground-floor bedroom that he can tinker with every day when he isn’t at work fixing someone’s Mercedes. His friends regularly get speeding tickets after getting their engines back from him.
This is the guy who can walk by when you start your car, and tell you that you have a vacuum leak in the back of your engine (throttle body gasket, he says), when you can’t even hear the hissing.
Let us now imagine that I drive my car to the local Pep Boys and ask for a rear main gasket to fix an air leak I found. I watch the Pep Boys dude’s left eyebrow go up as he steels himself to ask me for more information, because it is clear to him that I have absolutely no idea what I am talking about.
This happens to people who have expertise in things all the time.
Police officers regularly listen to people tell them all kinds of stuff about how people react, legal requirements, weapon use, etc. If a police officer is rolling his eyebrows at you, it is because (1) he has heard it before, and (2) he is too polite to tell you you’re a moron.
Doctors regularly see people who tell them the most inane stuff about basic health sciences. No, two injections of tuberculosis vaccine will not
cure your type 1 diabetes.
The people who come to your home to fix your dishwasher have to try really hard not to say you are a total idiot for throwing a half-eaten meatloaf into the machine, because the guy at the store said you could, or you saw someone do it on a commercial.
See, the point is that when you have expertise in something, anything, it is pretty darn obvious when someone without expertise begins talking as if they did. Even when it is non-obvious for everyone else.
You did exactly that.
Very thoroughly, in just your very first post. And you only made it worse with each iteration. You will notice that I very kindly tried to notice to you that that you completely misunderstood the OP.
Don’t be dismayed. I’ve stuck my foot in my own mouth plenty of times. Which has taught me that it is typically a good idea to keep my mouth shut when I am only vaguely familiar with a topic. It is one of the reasons I will refrain from answering a good number of questions here (besides disinterest).
And, to be clear, I am not mad at you, nor do I think you are stupid.
But you are a beginner, and you need to learn quite a bit more about advanced graphics systems before you should feel very comfortable answering questions about how advanced graphics systems work.
It is a very, very deep rabbit hole, and the reason companies spend millions to produce high-end video games.
