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.

I was just confused as to what recognizing that you had no idea of what you were doing, in a specific matter, had to do with the general scheme of things.

Pathetic as always.

We are talking about performance, I stuck in my 2 cents for what it is worth.

I know it isn't a good measure and I don't pretend it is.

I was more interested in the fact that Windows 8 works pretty well in a VM and it seems to have some compositing, whereas Gnome 3 runs like dirt with the same allocated video memory.

You're being too hard on yourself. I wouldn't go as far as referring to you using your lack of technical competence in a matter as "pathetic" per se... more like an "odd" choice for the basis of an argument.
