http://gmarceau.qc.ca/blog/2009/05/speed-size-and-dependability-of.html : There is a Basic implementation at (2, 2), which I suppose few people would expect to see there. The open-source group behind the FreeBASIC compiler deserve much more recognition than they are getting. Being at (2, 2) means i...

Possibly. CPU stuff like scheduling and memory management are faster on Linux, but graphical stuff is usually slower... unless you have an nVidia card and use nVidia's drivers for it.
So the graphical parts of this benchmark could be throwing it off.
On linux with wine, core.exe runs and looks awesome! But wine chokes on config.exe, so I can't set the controls :( Can someone lend me their configVars.dat (or tell me which lines to change) if that's where control settings are? 44 FPS nVidia GeForce FX 5700 nVidia driver 1.0.9629 wine 0.9.24 in Win...
Well, I already mentioned that to him. He insists on insisting that he already tried to update the driver, but the pc told him, "You don't needs any betta drivers that the ones you already gots!" *shrug* Sounds like he went to windowsupdate.com instead of nvidia.com/ati.com. Would nVidia/Ati's inst...
It might be neither the video card's nor yagl's fault. On computers where yagl is running slow, it may be because the graphics drivers that came with Windows are still in use. You can be sure OpenGL really is being hardware accelerated properly if you install better drivers from nvidia.com, ati.com,...
No wonder my 512 megabytes of RAM has been messed up lately... For a windows user this shouldn't be a problem as windows will free memory associated with a program when it ends. You should still use the free'ing functions though as good practise, and in case you decide to release for another platfo...
Now, I have a question. Is the executable I compiled on one linux gonna work on all or most other linux systems? Yes, it should work on any other x86 linux. Usually linux software is packaged as either: 1. source code with how to compile+install instructions. 2. a deb, rpm, ebuild, etc - a package ...

GTK 1.x is ugly. GNOME uses GTK 2.x (this is the one FB has headers for), and so does Firefox on Linux. GTK 2.x has a weird clunky File Open/Save dialog box, but other than that it's fine. There's also wx-c. FB headers for a C wrapper around a C++ library that uses GTK 2.x (on Linux) anyway. Dumbled...
