Windows Microsoft's Professional Developers Conference is currently under way, and as usual, the technical fellows at Microsoft gave speeches about the deep architecture of Windows - in this case, Windows 7 of course. As it turns out, quite some seriously impressive changes have been made to the very core of Windows - all without breaking a single application. Thanks to BetaNews for summarising this technical talk so well.

Right because 99% of computer users are working on high-end supercomputing clusters. Therefore, linux is better.


As far as what computer users are running lately:

Only 500 machines, but approximately 2 million copies of linux:

At the other end of the grunt scale, 11 million netbook machines with one copy of Linux each:

A bit like squeezing from both ends towards the soft middle.
