Yea but there is much more than just super computers. How about the server market with everyone going virtual vmware dwarfs microsoft hyper-v. There are a lot of other big markets Microsoft is losing in.

Then you have not seen anything linux can do By far linux is superior in "looks" ever hear of compiz or beryl?


I would just mute the audio and check out the desktop effects and btw linux has been doing this for YEARS way way before microsoft thought of Aero where do you think they got there idea for Aero from?

Or should I show you where distributed computing using Windows PCs puts every supercomputer to shame?
If you mean F@H, then why do I get 2k PPD extra when I fold SMP on Linux than on Windows? Not to mention, it's also got Linux and Mac PCs in there as well.

Windows is inefficient in how it handles multiple cores.

Want proof? Just ask OCTDBADBRO, he got like 50k PPD extra moving his eVGA SR-2 + 2x Hexacores @ 4Ghz to Linux.

Neither is Linux, actually, it's mostly made as a hobby but is flexible enough for companies to make it work for them.

Half the aero stuff was in KDE before Vista came out.

xfce4 > Aero. (IMO at least)

Besides the visual features of Compiz - Compiz (and other window managers) offer features to tweak every part of your desktop environment. Windows doesn't even have the feature to send a window to the background. Or virtual desktops. And you're stuck without em. (ive tried 3rd part programs for virtual desktops, n:
