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.

As opposed to writing the whole os in ASM?

That compounds it even further.

I understand it is a hobby OS, and as such more power to the people doing it. But they already had put a nail in the coffin with those decisions.

People who don't learn from history... yadda yadda. Alas, it is their time, so they can do with it as they wish. And from a technical stand point I am sure they're gaining some nice experience and insights. Which to me is the most important aspects of these type of projects.

Correction to your premises: FFT is available _also_ as a system call. And as a system call, you have a very nice and easy to access tool available for signal processing applications.
