In the concept art world you will use the tools required by the industry. They are not interested in the OS, just the tools. Which means photoshop, maya and other associated programs. Not all of them run on macs and some companies that I know no longer use macs to keep costs down. Which means windows. If you don't want to use them you will be shown the door.

The Kershaw 3/4 Ton has the generally shitty 8Cr13MoV chink steel- BUT Kershaw knows how to heat treat that shit /perfectly/. Coupled with that hollowe ground, if you know your way around whet stones and strops it makes a great straight razor, very tactile, you can hear each hair pop right off. I've used 1095 Cro-Van for shaving and the Kershaw 8Cr13MoV is still a superior shave, its baffling to say the least.

>>58514874
actually that example might not trigger a false positive but like if you have more information about the possible state than the compiler does or if it's a more complex code flow which is harder to analyze, like it conditionally reads a variable from a variable which was conditionally initialized in a previous loop iteration
