Your government payed a lot for the machine.
Other programmers have not government that payed a lot for them.

It seems that Diep is going to use the best machine that it can use when other
programs are not going to do it if the programmer is not very rich and the
programmer is not supported by someone who buy the fastest machine for him.

I did not decide to do something because christophe told me it and I also
learned from other programs but not everything that is in other programs I can
implement in my program.

I know about a lot of improvements to do that I did not do and one of the
reasons is that I spend too much time on forums to reply to posts.
