Kernels

I found this interesting article on Digg comparing the kernels of Linux vs. Windows Vista. Some of it is highly technical and I have no idea what it means, but it was still interesting to read. The two places where I saw the greatest disparity between the two Kernels was the architectures supported and the file system supported. Wow Linux supports a lot of hardware. In fact, I recently read that Linux supports more hardware out of the box than any other operating system ever has. I also thought it was funny that linux could run on both Microsoft Xboxes, but windows can't. The one thing I would love to see added to the comparison is a BSD(Uinx) kernel.

Pretty cool
