    Its really is. Any system information should come across already formatted; the idea you have to parse this information is backward.

    That's the way most systems are built. The REALLY stable ones also start stripping messages based on priority if the buffers start to overflow, as an added safety valve. The kernel shouldn't crash...

    If you are going to use a market share argument to determine "superiority", then you also must accept windows is "superior" to Linux.

    Yeah. A LOT of stuff needs the cooperatively multithreaded model that died in Win95. The guaranteed scheduling makes Win 3.1 better for devices with strict deadline requirements. I still work on...

    The scheduler in windows was designed for maximizing SYSTEM throughput, which sadly often leaves user mode apps hanging. Its actually quite simple: The highest priority task(s) that are not...

    Technically, they just hired the best engineers VMS had to offer, and had them build NT. Lets not forget, NT *used* to support architectures like PPC, SPARC, DEC Alpha, and the like. As those...

    Clang can't compile Linux because of all the GCC extensions built right into the Kernel, though I believe there's a branch that Clang can compile. As for performance, OpenMP support will likely drop...
