Does the lack of proper proof defend your case and stands against mine? I dont think so.Anyway, there are millions of applications for windows and we're talking about maybe 50 applications. The sample size for an accurate representation of progress would likely be at least 400 applications, and I don't think it's possible to get that much testing right now.
Nute asked me to name one application not working in 0.3.0 and working in current version. I named two, popping right from my memory. There are loads more. Iirc, 0.3.0 had no MESA, thus no opengl app would work. Those have chance to work now.
I have been with this project since 0.3.0/0.3.1 transition and believe me, i seen many wondrous things happen. Its true that most part of changes do not appear anywhere for casual user, like having an app working. Most important changes from 0.3.0:
- stable kernel (try running 0.3.1 and doing anything with OS itself);
- new loader, 2003 compatible;
- sound support (working with real hardware)
- virtualbox support (with 3d acceleration)
- new network stack
- initial windbg support
This is again from top of my head, things that are kinda important to me. Its kinda hard not to notice those.
