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.

...why are you staying with the company?

I am not one of the developers and for my position, they actually pay more than they probably should ;) Plus, it's a rather large company that's pretty stable, unlike some of the fly-by-night startups that people are leaving for. I've seen some folks head out for greener pastures, only to return 6 months to a year later.
