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:

这就是所谓的『噢,这个很好改嘛』造成的bug,我猜事情的过程大概是这样的:

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?”

某人提了个意见说:『出于稳定性考虑,对于服务器版系统,我们想让默认的视频加速级别稍微降一点。亲爱滴视频设置开发组,能不能帮帮忙呀?』

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.”

视频设置开发组答道:『当然没问题啦,默认设置相关的代码都是我们写的,做这点改动应该不会影响到其它人,我们只要动一个小指头就能改好了。』

Guy: “Sweet. Thanks.”

某人:『好耶,谢啦!』

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

然后呢,服务器版系统的默认的视频加速级别就调低了一档,大家都很满意。

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.)

除了一件事:显示控制面板中『完全加速』后面还跟着大大的『(推荐)』俩字,而这块却没人给它更新掉,呼呼。(如果某条帮助信息里有关这块的说明同样没有更新,我是一点也不会感到奇怪的。)

No code is an island.

没有哪段代码可以成为一座孤岛。

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.

所以当你抱怨『噢,拜托,改一行代码的事儿而已,用得着花那么长时间吗?』,想想这个小小的视频加速滑块的例子吧。
