oppinion is good, but test-results are better (for all window types of course)
and keep in mind that a compiler on x86 will likely ignore your floats
and keep everything in FPU registers unless you force it to round
intermediates down
i just dont want hard to debug quality issues on obscure architectures, 
and my fear is primarely the kbd window not the vorbis and sine windows ...

they can be generated at runtime on demand and shared

is ultra ugly and unreadable

without the redundant casts:

and some factoring out of common terms:
double pi2= M_PI/2;
double t= sin((i+0.5)*pi2/size);

In the past you could go to a library and read, borrow or copy any book
Today you'd get arrested for mere telling someone where the library is
