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.

Disk performance in Linux is horrifying. I say this from experience. The same hardware running Windows 2003 did not have this problem. Oh, and it's not an issue with drivers. The disk controller drivers have been certified for both Windows and Linux use.
