I'd say it's a matter of architecture:
Linux, Windows, & OSX to an extent share one way of doing things.
( Every function must be explicitly setup prior to becomming available to the system )
AmigaOS, BeOS, & QNX share a very different ( more efficient ) model.
( Functions start/stop on-the-fly as 'requested' by either hardware or user )
I like what you have said here
.. Do you mind if i quote it back to the other guy on the other forum?
