The sentence immediately before the first one in your quote above was,
"I brought a tape containing the source to our *Lisp Simulator, and
compiled and loaded it on the XL1200 in the demo room." The 14 minute
time was on the XL1200. It took 40 minutes on the 3630.
And you also said it took 19 minutes with the production compiler on the
Sun. So, now that the battle is over, who won?
But 5.5 minutes with the development compiler. During heavy debugging
sessions this is what people use, so the winner in compilation speed is
Well, I don't care for the Sun as a development environment, but many of
our developers get along pretty well. Most of the Lispm users here had
been using them since about release 4 or 5, so their work habits didn't
include use of presentations; therefore, they don't miss the ability to
click on everything in sight.
Ignorance is bliss.
Too little too late.
