Re: /etc/disktab on vax
There are also the fact that people writing modern SW often do not care about
execution speed, since it anyway is fast enough on modern hardware.
I will chip in with my 5c here (no more 2c in .au is in use). I quite
enjoy writing my software both hobbyist and work on at most 40MIPS
(CISC/RISC doesn't matter for the purposes of this argument as the
difference is trivial compared to current monster machines available at
local super market). I like to do this because:
1) If I make a speed improvement in the code or worse a decrease in
performance and memory usage, you really notice the drop in execution
2) Less distractions.
Eg, on my dining table there's a gorgeous VAXStation 4000-m90 + BA350
shelf. A ZetaSBC (CP/M) and an 11/70 in the other room with a large
quantity of other older systems. It's very relaxing to sit in the lounge
at the table, away from the distractions and work on things.
