    Yeah...problem is, you still need the value of AX, unless (as mentioned) you're doing a destructive copy.

    Yeah, I don't think going through major contortions to avoid a short branch is really worth the trouble until you get into heavily pipelined CPUs (Pentium or higher, 486 to a lesser extent,) where...

    Count me in for just using su instead; of course, if you're having to get root privileges on a regular basis for something, it's worth investigating whether to just adjust groups or permissions to...

    Gah, yes. The GNOME 3 debacle was the thing that drove me off GNOME permanently; it wasn't just the terrible design, but the devs' naked contempt for anyone who dared disagree with their Grand Vision...
