    Microsoft Native Code is code that is run natively using approved
    versions of Microsoft Windows(tm).

    Except that it isn't. It gets complicated, but all
    user-level processes in Microsoft Windows and in Linux
    run in emulated hardware, at least as far as the virtual
    addressing and illegal instructions are concerned.

    WinE emulation will of course extract some performance
    because it is not communicating with the device natively.
    This performance will not be felt by those using
    CPU-intensive tasks, unless said tasks are heavily
    utilizing the Win32 et al API.

    s/made/approved/

    That would be iNtel.

    Linux makes one use one's mind.
    Windows just messes with one's head.
