@rhm:

See, this is exactly what I meant. Both of you believe a term has one meaning, but in reality the meaning is different for developers using different tools.

From wikipedia:

immediate-mode

And from apple:

apple-immediate-mode

And this little bit from the nvidia developer manual:

So, as you can see, developer's with different backgrounds use the terms you are using with completely different meanings. That's all I am sayin'.
