what compiler has paint.net been compiled with?

Recommended Posts

Paint.NET is written mostly in C#. Should be pretty obvious what compiler is used from that simple fact ...

... and even then, I don't buy into conspiracy theories like what you linked to. So the compiler checks the CPUID string, so what? You cannot necessarily expect the developers at Intel to buy a big lot of AMD chips and double the amount of testing they perform on their exotic optimizations (or put another way, you cannot expect Intel's accounting department to fund that). Or maybe they did, and found out that the AMD chips don't execute those specific combinations of instructions correctly. I don't know, and it doesn't matter. In either case the safe bet is to rely on a more pedestrian code path.
