Windows Microsoft's Professional Developers Conference is currently under way, and as usual, the technical fellows at Microsoft gave speeches about the deep architecture of Windows - in this case, Windows 7 of course. As it turns out, quite some seriously impressive changes have been made to the very core of Windows - all without breaking a single application. Thanks to BetaNews for summarising this technical talk so well.

This is sad because Linux kernel IS indeed superior to the windows kernel.


How, exactly, is the Linux kernel superior to the Windows kernel?

While I would not be inclined to make any sweeping statement such as "X is superior to Y", a willingness to open up the code to the wider world seems a good long term investment. Despite any ups and downs, my investment of confidence, professionally, has performed well over the years. I see no reason to abandon it. I would provisionally call that superior.

An open system can be better adapted to your needs.

Just look what the HPC guys are using.

Maybe because Linux is free and for commercial OS they need to pay per machine, or even per core?

Right because 99% of computer users are working on high-end supercomputing clusters. Therefore, linux is better.

Typical freetard bullshit.
