@Whetzel,

First off, Whetzel, GFK is correct in saying that Creation is derived from Gamebryo, itself which is derived from NetImmerse.

@GFk,

I don't know how to debate my point with you without causing a flame war, but yes  Creation not being the same thing as Gamebryo, you're correct if that how you wish to look at it.  You might say the same thing about Windows itself. Compare todays Windows 8 with Windows 3.1  One could actually say they are two different systems.  If you're talking about the number of years (20+), I wasn't trying to be correct, I just wanted to point out that it is old, just like the Torque engine that I use.  I believe it came out in 2007.

Windows 8 is completely different form windows 3.1.

Windows 3.1 is a DOS 16bit program that evolved into 95/98 (that sort of hid DOS)

Windows 2000 is the corporate version of NT (NT5) that shared the same GUI as 95 and tried to merge the two API's

Windows 8 derives from Windows NT 32bit codebase (which was originally created as OS/2 V3)
XP and everything after is based on this NT kernal

They share similar looks and API's but internally are completely different beasts.

Bethesda have said that the creation engine has been enhanced - I don't think a lot of their troubles are the engines fault though. More the way they want to 'bend' it's way of operation to make it do things it was never designed for.

@IWasAdam,

If you're clarifying my point, thanks.  It reads as if you are!

I really liked Windows 2000 and used it for quite a few years as it was way more stable than 98 / me.
Until the next time...

Yup, Windows 2000 was rock solid and even ran 99% of the games of that era. I did use NT 4 for a while but 2000 to me was just like a super stable version of 98. Windows Me was complete junk and less stable than a PC with faulty RAM, CPU and corrupted hard drive :P

Windows 8.1 was my fave, soo fast and stable.
My dev VM is Windows 8.1 and despite some of my wacky coding it’s never crashed on me ;D

Shame they didn’t keep with the visual style of 8.1 when doing Windows 10 :(

Yep, every OS has a good and a bad version I feel - Win 8.1 is a good one for Windows based systems.

Yes you have to fight with it to get W10 working as you would like, but it can be done.

I'm typing this on Linux, but I quite like Mac OS too, although Apple can also be complete arses like Microsoft, and with Linux there can be compatibility problems.  No OS is perfect.
