If Apple thinks an iPad can do the work of a Mac, their decision makers are smoking way too much weed.

They could easily sell it for $150. People would be lining up to buy Mac OS and install it on their own hardware.

True dat. If there was ever a getoffmylawn of computer tech, it would be John C.

The myth of DirectX 12 was that it had steam to begin with. But hey, it came with a free version of spyware so what's not to like.

I'm not sure how true that is. I don't think most people that want to use MacOS are the "buy a computer and install a different operating system" type. Sure they'd pick up a few people, but they'd probably lose way more.

It takes 3 to 5 years to make a brand new engine for a new API, so how is DX12 losing steam? It has barely support currently and new games with fundamentally new engines are still 2-4 years away. And once consoles use DX12 or Vulcan (both have the same issue) this will become a landrush on DX12/Vulcan. Considering how awesome performance is in Doom I would welcome Vulcan engines to be honest.

DX 12 is losing what steam exactly? To lose steam you would have had to have steam in the first place and DX 12 never gained any momentum. Joke question confirmed.
