    That may be, but it's also fact that open source users as a whole are a lot less attractive than non-os users.

    A lot of people tell me I am stupid for using open source because it comes bundled with a lot of adware/shitapps most the time.

    Then I point out that open source gives me the option of skipping it on instal, unlike the stuff they just paid for.

    people just don't like open source because they find it too complicated, it goes:

    Apple: easiest to use, fewest options
    Microsoft: not hard to use, plenty of options
    Open Source: people are too busy working on the actual functionality to concentrate on making a simple GUI

    Why do you insist on talking about things you know nothing about ? Hyper-V is for vitalization of infrastructure like domain controllers.

    Try reading up about it on wikipedia

    all this article really proves is that code integrity doesn't really mean anything

    firefox's code might be 100% flawless
    but it's still a bloated
    slow
    crash-happy
    memory-leaking piece of shit

    performance will always be more important than code-correctness

    Good thing Linux still wins on performance.

    On another note, have they finally implemented nic link aggregation into Windows?

    Hey, that looks a lot like Xen. And nope, Windows still doesn't have its own link aggregation.

    that chart is kinda poorly made. it's hard to tell whether the narrow bands near the top are only a small percentage of the machines or if they all extend down to the bottom but are not all visible.
