comment Getting strokes and fill to align to pixel boundaries
This would mean that the "pen" used to draw the line is not centered at the specified coordinates, but "hangs" below and to the right of them. This would be a strange and arbitrary asymmetry — why to the bottom right, and not e.g. To the top left? And how would this work with arbitrary coordinate transformations? This would cause a lot of mathematical problems and oddities. QuickDraw (the drawing API of the classic MacOS) did this, as it worked with integer coordinates, so .5 offsets were not possible. Also, QuickDraw didn't have coordinate transformations, so that problem didn't apply.

comment Why does void in C mean not void?
Even in void *, void means "nothing", not "anything". You can't dereference a void *, you need to cast it first to another pointer type.

comment Why is quantity in software still written as “1 result(s)”?
I don't get it. How makes localization this anymore difficult?
