David and the team are geniouses. I decided to attempt a port of FreeType to my operating system last year, and expected it to occupy a couple of weeks.

To my big surprise, the code only depends on a small subset of C99 and plugging it into almost any kind of architecture and build system is really easy.

I wish all coders was this quality minded.

End result? My tiny OS has better looking fonts than Windows :-)
