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.

You get too abstract.

Its about "Get The F***K away from my code", when person who want changes is from oustide.


That increase communication costs, that increase bug-finding/fixing costs, that increase division between programmers and managers and testers...


Bad, bad, bad.

In Linux development things are organized better. You will hear statement from above only when you do not know what you are doing ;) (and most probably you think otherwise).
