At the end of this, results can be converted to fixed point or floating point output.

This is not just about the Propeller. It is about any computer is better used by limiting floating point. But often beginners think that floating point is the most direct approach to getting the results they want. I suppose it is because the common calculator relies heavily on floating point display.

All things considered, I can live and thrive without Microsoft products. LINUX is just fine.
