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.

Well this bullshit comes up time and time again, because stuff breaks. How many times has someone's video goes tits up after a kernel upgrade ... and don't give me this "it should be in the kernel" bullshit ... when you are stuck at a command prompt having to use another machine to google the solution it isn't a lot of fun.

Stable API/ABIs are good engineering like it or not.
