Kernel Comparison: Linux (2.6.20) versus Windows (Vista)

Thursday, April 19, 2007

This aims to be the most comprehensive kernel, comparison of the latest most popular Unix style kernel versus the latest most popular kernel. In Q2 2007, this means Linux 2.6.20 kernel versus Windows Vista kernel.
This is an excellent comparison of the two kernels, comparing nearly every aspect a kernel encompasses.

Here's a nice example:

Estimated kernel bugs total: Linux: 1200 Windows: 30000

I just love that statistic. In any case, this provides some great insight into the workings of both kernels, and their respective strengths and weaknesses. Read more @ Widefox.

Note: When going through, green text represents better or more flexible and red text represents worse or less flexible, neutral or controversial.
