Windows "Windows is indeed slower than other operating systems in many scenarios, and the gap is worsening." That's one way to start an insider explanation of why Windows' performance isn't up to snuff. Written by someone who actually contributes code to the Windows NT kernel, the comment on Hacker News, later deleted but reposted with permission on Marc Bevand's blog, paints a very dreary picture of the state of Windows development. The root issue? Think of how Linux is developed, and you'll know the answer.

This makes a lot of sense. Its difficult to pay for the manpower to match a group who do something out of love of the art. Microsoft, at least the top levels, have known this for a long time. Its the reason for there unending war on Linux, even when they may publicly applaud open source. Its hard to compete with free.
