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.

True, but to be fair, the original author of the "rant" was talking from a purely technical stand point. He was a developer, not a salesperson or corporate exec. And in the product space of software, the technical aspects of it are what matters the most. You could be the most efficient hacker in the world, but if your software sucks, who is going to but it?
