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.

ISS are using hardened machines for outerspace, not modern machines.

Actually, there are dozens of fairly normal laptops (Thinkpads, including quite recent T400) on the ISS. The only major modification is cooling (because convection doesn't work in microgravity).
