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.

Thanks !!

I appreciate your posts !

Usually, we here have Vim vs Emacs, Gnome vs KDE, Ubuntu vs Debian, Google vs Apple... everyone usually here is a little fanboy but within reason.

but your posts are highly original ! I must congratulate you !

You are the most delusional troll I can remember on Osnews ! You just talk bullshit, like you know everything , everyone else are liers and only you know the truth!

Its so stupid that I just suggest everyone to just laugh and forget what you said ! ( not worth mentioning linux servers on the world, the embedded market, linux always need less ram and cpu that windows usually, even nvidia and steam developers reporting FPS increase on linux comparing to windows ) !

Other people must really like you !!! ;)

Thank you for a good laugh !!! You are the King Idiot !

You are most welcome. I should also add that the market really likes Linux. That is why despite being free Linux has a 1% market share. Because it is so awesome.

Or wait...

Does Linux have a 1% market share because it is so awesome or is it because people like myself are too stupid too see the awesome that is Linux? Isn't the prevailing view of Linux users that ordinary people are just too dumb too understand how amazing Linux is?

Yes, you are too smart and too cleaver for the rest of us. Isn't it wonderful up on that high horse mate?

That's desktop market share. Server market share is way higher than 1%, because Linux is awesome - on servers.

Linux has only 1% marketshare on desktops and laptops because Microsoft coerces manufacturers into installing Windows.

However in markets where MS has little or no leverage - servers, supercomputers, embedded devices, phones and tablets Linux has been a spectacular success [and MS a spectacular failure].

In fact sometime in the next 2-4 years Linux (Android) will be the best selling OS as portable devices begin to replace most desktops and laptops.
