1:43:41garryjohanson Q: So one of the reasons I became briefly enthusiastic about WinDBG Preview is the ability to record a trace of a running program and then send that trace to someone else and they can look at the exact debug session you were looking at, rather than having to reproduce a bug spending possibly a long period of time. To me that sounds like a silver bullet way to reproduce a bug. Can you think of any reason why I would be wrong to conclude that the feature is a silver bullet for reproducing bugs?

1:47:30pythno Q: I studied the rendering code for a bit and it seems that the vertices and indices for the cubes (and quads) are generated each frame on the CPU and put into a big VBO which is set to stream_draw. Is this correct and, if yes, what was the decision to do it that way and not even using VAOs? For big models with a lot of polygons would you go a different route?
