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.

Binary dumps for logs? That is stupid like a binary config registry.

On the contrary, putting logs into searchable binary storage like ElasticSearch is great. Grep doesn't really scale.
Binary is not a good format for the default system logs though.
