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.

The logging is far superior to anything we've had before, the very fact that it is binary ensures more security. Before, it was relatively easy for a hacker to just edit the logs and the admin wouldn't know he was there. Now there are mechanisms in place to ensure the log really comes from where it is intended, and it is much harder to change that information.

True, that. And there's the journalctl tool to display all the system logs, in one place, in human-readable format.

Everyone else except Debian is moving on, but they've never complied with standards anyway.

Never complied with standards? In what way? What supporting evidence can you show?
