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.

DEC is no longer around because of poor management decisions, products were excellent (both software and hardware).

It was a weird situation as most employees could see the vast spending, uncontrolled growth in non-product-related areas and decisions regarding the future of personal computing and how that should affect the company's business model going forth would cause the company to stumble and fall. It fell hard and fast.

Despite the fact the company is gone, VMS and other divisions of DEC STILL live on, absorbed by other companies.
