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.

I don't know if DEC is a good example. They are long gone by now, whereas Microsoft is not only still around but thriving as well.

The two companies have very different definition of what "product" is/was. So corporate cultures may have been almost uncorrelated.
