The whole point of me providing the link was to prove that Sony and Toshiba had engineers on the Cell project and that it isn't 100% IBM. It might be 99% IBM, but you have to give credit to Sony and Toshiba for that 1%. That was the whole point of the discussion with the Cell, that IBM did not do all of it. I don't know why there is denial about Sony and Toshiba doing nothing... They are pretty capable comapnies, Toshiba used to make chips for SGI back in the olden days.
Me get hold of the Windows kernel! Ha! Its not possible since its closed source. What you are asking isn't possible. But if there are complaints about the Linux kernel, there is no reason why you can't fix it youself since its licenced under the GPL. If fact, if you can fix something in Linux, you should.
As for me using the terminal, its the most effective way of doing certain things. Of course its not for everyone, but for those who can make it work is excellent. Now contrast this with Windows. Nope, everyone must use that Fisher and Price interface. Yeah, there are alternatives like the command prompt, and that is no where as powerful as bash, and there are third party shells, but they are not distributed with Windows and Microsoft probaly discourages its use.
And Internet Explorer being modern and up to date? It doesn't even pass the acid test. Yes, I like to make fun of silly complicated standards but seriously, up to date and modern! Standards compliant!
Safari was first with passing the acid test. Then Opera, followed by Konqueror and Firefox in no particular order. Internet Explorer isn't even on the list of browsers that have passed the acid test. So much for supporting new technologies and all that first. More like last.
As for Microsoft security, its a joke. Absolute joke. Tell me, where are the intrustion detection systems, where are the madatory access controls in Windows? You have to fork out lots of money for them, cause it doesn't come with the OS. These tools, along with the firewall and rootkit hunters are the absolute minimum in security and Microsoft doesn't provide them.
And Microsoft fixing security flaws. Security researchers have proven their random number generator to be dodgy... four years ago!
Quick isn't it?
As for me being closed minded... nonsense! I use MS products as well, so I'm not one of those people who complain about something that I don't use everyday. If something where to come along and be better than Linux, I'll probaly throw it down and use that instead, seriously.
And no, Windows can never be better than Linux.
C. P. U. Its not a big processor... Its a series of pipes!
