FLTK-FULL - Framework for a desktop GUI - simple, lightweight and independent

Here is the eye candy ("Cario") version... :good:

Init Security Concerns...

Sharing is caring. The The Cathedral and the Bazaar (BSD/Linux) should indeed encourage technological Ecumenism ("cooperation") :friends:

Positions "for" or "against" pbzip2...

I'm very interested in using "pbzip2" as a drop-in bzip alternative.
Any thoughts regarding it's merits (or lack thereof) in a multi-core system?
