Amiga & AROS Saturday November 8, I received an email from someone, inquiring if I would be interested in "doing a first interview/introduction into a new operating system". We get these emails and news submissions all the time, and most of the time, "new operating system" means Ubuntu-with-a-black-theme, so we don't bother. I figured this time things wouldn't be different, but after a bit of digging around, there's a little more to it this time.

And unfortunately Unix/Linux's sw model has many limitations: BeOS has really shown this, its application responsiveness has not been reproduced on Linux even on much more powerful hw and I don't expect this to change anytime soon..
:-( :-(


This is my observation as well.

I wonder what it is exactly in the Linux stack that makes the responsiveness so slow?

X?
GTK/Qt?
The kernel?

Every OS that makes applications more responsive than Linux has my support.
