Not to nitpick...

Why did you link to Slashdot when you could have just as easily linked to the location of the protothreads library?

BTW it's at http://www.sics.se/~adam/pt/ for those who would rather go straight to the meat and potatoes.

Anyway, it looks like a pretty cool library if you're trying to do threading where there is no operating system support for heavyweight threads, such as embedded systems.

Wow, OS News going the Slashdot way: having duplicate articles. Not only that, dupes of Slashdot articles no less!
