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.

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.

As far as what computer users are running lately:

Only 500 machines, but approximately 2 million copies of linux:

At the other end of the grunt scale, 11 million netbook machines with one copy of Linux each:

A bit like squeezing from both ends towards the soft middle.
