There is this interesting question Why are start-up times faster on Windows 8? and currently it has 25 votes. It focuses on win7 to win8 differences from performance point of view.
I thought it would be interesting to point out the difference between XP and 7, too, as that was a bigger architecture change and probably bigger performance gain.
I asked Why are start-up times faster on Windows 7 than on XP? and it currently has -1 votes. While I'm not a vote count freak, I don't really see what am I doing wrong. I've tried to address the same problem but the 'popularity' of my question, compared to the other one, is a bit outstanding, even if they were meant to be very similar.
My best guess is that I'm somehow making unreasonable points (?) or using an irritating writing style here, but I can't see what do I lack or commit and how to phrase a better question.
I'm assuming that my attempt to see behind the scenes design differences between winxp and win7 from performance point of view is valid, provided that the win8 question is valid and worth 25 votes here.
What is wrong with my question and what can I do to make it a better question?
