Hm, I have heard another story from developers. They are telling me that one or the other is not a big deal. I might get a biased view though, since I am very reluctant to sponsoring anything CUDA-based. I happen to agree with David, and my life is to short to invest in a dying code base. Hence, it may be that developers are telling me what I want to hear, and I haven't really started looking closely at the codes yet (actually I have only looked at coding with CUDA so far, and it looked OK).
