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.

Yes, that is exactly it.

What I said are facts because I KNOW them to be. I know what you said is not true. I know what I know. This is how the world works. People state their observations. If we want to take it to the level of science.... that is how science works also. I have stated my claim. I have stated my methodology. It is up to those that care to repeat the experiments and find who is telling the truth.

What *I* said are facts because I KNOW them to be. I know what you said is not true.

Actually, what you said might well be true but your anecdotal evidence does not scale to the Linux Desktop in general.

I have stated my methodology.

Your methodology has already been shown insufficient by others so I see no need to repeat your experiments.

Well, he almost has a point with that Radeon 8500 ...Linux support for it is a bit half-baked ( http://www.osnews.com/permalink?561942 ).
