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.

ISS are using hardened machines for outerspace, not modern machines.

Super computers != Desktop operating systems

I could go on. We are talking about primarily desktop operating systems with Windows ... and none of the examples prove it is a desktop operating system. It proves that it works well in those circumstances.

Lemur2, they guy that doesn't understand what a use case is or why it really matters when evaluating software.
