Off topic posts are fine but at the very least provide some insight regarding your shared link, a summary at the very least. If you wish to simply share a link because it's interesting, post it on sites like hacker news.

Fixed.

Edit: And the gallery one is now also fixed.

AROS isn't covered under a proprietary license, but a software license (open source). While there are some minor issues with the license these could be solved by a subsequent version which once was talked about but abandoned due to the lack of clarification on the meaning of 'AROS development team'.

Some parts are used in Morphos, under the terms of the AROS public license, and respected as such.

Debian legals issue is with the termination clauses.

There is plenty of interesting case studies regarding software licenses if you'd like to understand these things more.

Thanks for the patch!

Patch applied and committed on both trunk and one of the V0 branches.

It's probably better than the bugs are put on the bug tracker instead of aros-exec, since it'll get simply buried here. I do wish we had a more visible bug tracker, it's a bit hidden away on source forge. (It's also sad that we still use source forge)

Could someone tell me why we still have V0 branches? and what the difference is between the two we have?

Just tried it, it worked for me. If you'd like I can mirror it somewhere.

I've added a tongue-in-cheek one, mainly because I was more inclined to remove the feature all together rather than really reviving it, because to me polls seem a bit silly. But if people really care for it, surely I can create polls once in a while.

Synergy (software kvm) would make for a nice port.

Global variables are not on the stack but are in the data segment, they are allocated at compile time, visible to the whole process. Local auto variables are only visible in the local scope and allocated at runtime (no default value assigned). So use local vars instead of global unless it makes sense.

Many questions and I'm going to answer them very shortly. "xy->a" is 'slower' in the sense that it first needs to dereference the pointer before it knows where it can store the value of 10. Where as b is in this case in the .data segment and that's just an offset. The dereferencing is just one instruction so you really don't need to care. There are cases where for a loop you'll want to copy them to a local variable (stack), but it really depends on the case else it might even be 'slower'. But definitely not something you want to care about at this point.

Learning the difference between heap (dynamically allocated) data (global variables and static variables) and stack (local variables) will be more important to learn about, in sense of allocation costs, initialisation, visibility, .. . A stack is finite (ish) so you want to learn about the benefits and pitfalls with each.

Performance is not something you want to care about until it really requires it. Just let the compiler do it's excellent job. Just stick with making your code best readable to programmers.

Ok let's first make it a.b = 10; (So not a pointer to a struct that's gettting dereferenced) and both the struct and the variable are on the stack. Then, no there is no difference when writing or reading from.

Why did you want to know?
