With all the driver problems that come with it, I am starting to think GL is harder. Sure if something is more difficult to use that is tough.. but if something outright WILL NOT WORK which is the case for spring on many systems..
hard =/= cannot.
With GL frequently it is cannot. You could blame the hardware manufacturers but really, do you own an electric car? I don't because I cannot recharge it easily.
Not that I am saying GL is bad, we have what we have an I will happily use it because spring = hard, no spring = cannot. I don't want to have no engine because writing an engine and all of the other stuff spring does.. that is DAMN HARD. So I am grateful for spring even if sometimes GL = cannotrun for some people.
