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.

"Too bad for Microsoft. You had to know that Microsoft is reaching the end. Linux development shows the way to get things done.. No commercial entity can compete with that.
Go Linux, go!

A lot of linux development is done by commercial entities too.
"
"A lot" might actually be understating it. Commercial entities are involved is practically every aspect of linux and that fact is such common knowledge it's hard to believe anyone would think otherwise -- unless they have no clue what their talking about.
