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.

1) You are comparing to ubuntu/mint, etc.. Try comparing to something solid like OpenSuSE or Fedora.
2) Yes, linux installations can break but it gives you tools to easily fix it. I gave up on windows XP in 2004 after a horrible experience with Microsoft support where an idiot eventually suggested I format. I had stumbled only a NTFS bug. the microsoft support person denied the bug but it was eventually fixed in Vista.
luckily I didn't and I used a linux rescue CD with ntfs write support to fix my windows installation.
