Re: Gnome for Windows

"Hahahahaha! You've never actually used any of the popular Linux distros then have you? You know, like how everything (apps, all OS components) are all individual packages that you can install or leave out depending on how you want to build your OS?"

Yes great - I can uninstall packages and drivers on most OSs. Windows is modular down to almost every capability, API and interface. For instance if I want to use a hardware offload accelerated network driver in Windows I can simply plug in the right driver at the correct level in the fully modular NDIS network stack. Linux doesn't have that level of modular design and to do the same on Linux you have to install a driver kernel hack! Google it if you are not aware of that.

For all the things you might not like about Windows it is very modular and structured in it's design.
