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.

"Run levels are a defined standard,Debian simply ignored them


And good on them for moving ahead and, just like Slackware, getting rid of the obsolete runlevels system.
"

And actually that's a de facto standard foss way of progress. New idea, implemented, let to live, and if it proves better, will propagate into other distros as well. If not, will eventually die out. Maybe ( ;) ) not the best way, but still, it's working.
