On OOM

Building on what Havoc wrote two years ago about the fallacies of OOM safety (Out Of Memory) in user code I'd like to point you to this little mail I just posted to jack-devel which tries to give you the bigger picture. Should be interesting for non-audio folks, too.

Say NO to OOM safety!

It should be obvious but in case it isn't: the opinions reflected here are my own. They are not the views of my employer, or Ronald McDonald, or anyone else.

Please note that I take the liberty to delete any comments posted here that I deem inappropriate, off-topic, or insulting. And I excercise this liberty quite agressively. So yes, if you comment here, I might censor you. If you don't want to be censored you are welcome to comment on your own blog instead.
