It would be a mistake to judge that on the basis of those posting
in this forum. I've done some GPU work, but "compute" doesn't
mean anything to me. The R task view for HPC lists a bunch of GPU
packages, none of which use "compute" in the name:
I've also used PyCUDA and PyOpenCL, and am aware of PyMagma, none
of which refer to "compute".
But can we please reduce the bike shedding
Marketing is only bike shedding if you don't care how many people
make use of your work.
