TONT 40553 没有哪段代码是一座孤岛

此处应左拐 | 此处应右拐。


Norman Diamond noted in a comment that on Windows 2003 Server, the Display Adapter Troubleshooting slider still lists “full acceleration” as the recommended setting even though the default for Server is “full minus one”.

Norman Diamond在一则评论中指出,在Windows Server 2003中,显示适配器的(硬件加速)『疑难解答』滑块仍然将『全部加速』列为“推荐设置”,尽管默认设置是『全开退一档』。

This is one of those “Oh, that’s an easy change” bugs. The discussion probably went like this:


Some guy whose idea this was: “For stability reasons, we want to lower the default video acceleration for Server a notch. Dear Video Setup team, can you do that for us?”


Video Setup team: “Sure thing, that’s no problem. The default setting is all done by us; it should not have any impact on anybody else. We’ll just do it and be done with it.”


Guy: “Sweet. Thanks.”


And bingo, the default video acceleration dropped to one notch below full on Server, and everyone was happy.


Except that there’s this text tucked away in the Display control panel that has the word “(recommended)” next to “full acceleration”. That didn’t get updated. Oops. (I wouldn’t be surprised if there is also some help text that didn’t get updated for this change.)


No code is an island.


So when you complain, “Aw come on, it’s a one-line change. What’s taking so long?” think about the little video acceleration slider.
