Oh, I have seen the huge speed difference between the current
UI/environment and a minimalist one (both on real hardware). That's
sufficient to question the assertion that Windows would be slower

This is the development list, not the sugar list. Technically, Microsoft
is not a competitor of development, it only competes with the currently
used OS and UI. I can't see another list fitting the debate as well as
devel at . Feel free to educate me otherwise.
