[Blog] Microsoft Dev Explains Why Windows is Slower than Linux - Page 7

post #61 of 89
what's keeping programmers from changing the kernel themselves for windows?
i don't know what a kernal is coded in or if you can even view it, since i'm not a programer.

also, why doesn't windows go open source? it would seem to me that they could employ less people and let the world help out with pushing the OS forward quicker.

Programmers (aside of Microsoft employees) do not have access to Windows' source code. The Linux kernel is mostly written in C. The same applies to the Windows kernel.

That computer was built in 06.

By fine I mean it runs just fine, with no Aero ofcourse. It can play music, browse the net and even play YouTube at SD resolutions. I use it only for downloading anyway.

And Hatfieco, Windows 7 would fly on that configuration of yours, You're obviously doing something wrong.

Windows is slower because techs are not allowed to optimize it? Come on now...

I think it would make more sense to say Linux is quicker because anyone can optimize it.

Benchmark, and post the lowest number. Results are "time in ns" followed by "hash". It works on both windows and Linux equally.

Don't forget to install the same Java version under windows and Linux.

At work I have Windows 8 Running on a Pentium 4 with 2GB of RAM and a 80gb Hard Drive and it runs perfectly, no complaints, even enough power to run VS 2012.

My man. Dont mention stuff like that in sparta.
That Mr.Dinosaur that wrote the Kernel has turned into a fossil long time ago.

2GB is massive amount of RAM, and VS2012 is only compiler, not something that eats too much CPU time. Basically it has enough memory, and you don't stress even CPU too much when you are using your computer. Try something intensive.

Chill Buddy, I'm only saying Windows 8 works fine on older hardware. And i only reference VS because it does actually eat quite alot of CPU. It's not just a compiler, it's an IDE. It does more than just compile code. And by todays standards, 2gb isn't really that much, considering people have up to 32gb in their PC's.
