    GCC has become quite literal, and could be a basis for a CPU itself. See also my project: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCR3...S5A702wo4bol_Q

    I also use -fno-defer-pop for compiling the kernel, more on that here aswell: (minimal jitter) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2gIUbPeQ1ow

    People should move to the BSD 3-clause licence though. Research shows that the licence becomes a symbol over longer periods of time, that needs to be acceptable to The Divine. BSD 3-clause is closest to this, and a principle of fair pay, that needs to be the relevant principle in a purely business oriented environment. Microsoft also can be overtaken by a decentralized "enthusiast" fair pay online economy.

    BSD will then be the relevant OS, as it is a legal variant of Unix.

    Peaceful Salutations.
