OSNews, Generic OSes Yesterday MenuetOS released a kernel update that includes Fourier transform, sinc and resampling. Fourier transform is significant in that it allow for more efficient computation and is essential for high speed computing.

AFAICT Menuet doesn't have standard libraries in the traditional sense; everything, including GUI code, is 'in the kernel' and accessed through the same syscall interface. Another way of putting it would be that the standard library is accessed through the same interface as traditional low-level kernel functions, so from an app's POV there is no difference.

That is a horrible, horrible idea. IMHO.

As opposed to writing the whole os in ASM?
