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.

Most Linux kernel developers are actually paid for what they are doing. That, I agree, however not contradict with the fact that they probably love what they're doing.
