James Hills van Gamer's Alliance heeft een editorial in elkaar gedraaid, waarin hij een eind weglult over Linux: "Become a Penguin, Looking out the "Window" at Linux". Hier heppie een stukje:
Having used Windows for many years and virtually every version, I have seen it become more and more bloated, and more and more unstable. The top thing I liked about Linux was that it was much faster than Windows and at the same time was far more stable. Infact, the only time I had Linux crash was when I had a brown-out and the computer got confused somehow. In the time while I was experimenting, I only had one application crash as well, and when this happened it did not hurt the system in the least. I merely shut down the program and logged out but did not have to reboot, as I often have to do when a program crashes in Windows.
I feel that the reason why Linux is so stable and optimized is the Open Source philosophy that surrounds it. Because of this, the system is constantly being improved and optimized unlike Windows which appears to have many bugs in it which continue to exist for years across numerous versions. As long as the two philosophies continue to diverge I feel that Linux will continue to improve while Windows will continue to degrade at its core, only adding new features as we saw with the progression from Windows 95 to 98.
