Some of my suggestions of the filename:
#include <allegro_ng.h> // axilmar's suggestion.
#include <allegro_ngx.h> // With an X, X's mean future.
#include <allegroX.h> // Without NG, X is just like NG.
#include <allegrou.h> // This just sounds cool.
Quite frankly, any of these is better then the current allegro5.h. Why? Because it does not contain the 5.
There was a time when a high version number was considered very nice. Why? It meant that the program was advanced. It meant it was ape shit advanced. But as some of you old farts here would remember, today are not the old days.
A high version number means shittines. Hard to believe, I know. But Dr. Vann Vannerhouer conducted a research on the International Institute for Applied Statistics and Supervising (II-ASS).
He presented two software products to 10,000 test subjects. One was Norton Antivirus (version number 16) and the other was Firefox 2.1.5.
Lets clear one thing, all the subjects were chosen because of their DFR. Thats the Dumb Fuck Rating. Why? Well if the subjects knew anything about computers, naturally they would first ask themselves why an AV program and a browser program are being compared. Secondly, anyone with a sound brain prefers Firefox over Norton. I know I know, not comparable. But hey, the people with DFR over 10.5 don't know that.
If anyone is asking themselves how the DFR is calculated, its pretty simple actually, but I think that Dr. Vannerhouer himself explained it quite good:
Dr. Vannerhouer said:
The DFR rating is calculated by dividing the Stupidity of the subject with his Ignorance. Then the value is multiplied by pi.
If you want to know more about the DFR please contact Dr. Vannerhouer: firstname.lastname@example.org. (Yes, he is 80 years old. )
Back to the subject matter at hand. Allegro 5, this is what the topic is actually about, yes? Well because I'm an on-topic kind of guy, lets continue.
All the subjects had no prior knowledge about the programs. They could only judge them by their version numbers. So, what happened?
9,745 people preferred Norton over Firefox because the higher version number seemed to imply importance/superiority. This was an unexpected result. Quite fascinating actually. Why did this happen? DF's. Yes. They don't know that the version number doesn't matter.
What can we conclude? It doesn't matter what the name of the header is. The only people using Allegro 5 will be people that actually know something about technology. Who cares if there is a 5 in there or not?
Well, these are my 2 cents anyway.
