    As I said, I cannot think of a SE website where your question as it's currently described, would be on topic.

    The reason you're getting “none” as an answer is that you seem to want to ask a question to start a discussion, rather than to ask a specific question that has a specific answer. And although there could be a specific question distilled out of the discussion topic you've described, it would not be very informative – you would need to ask many basic questions to start getting a clear understanding of the knowledge you're missing on this subject. Suggestion: read books on how operating systems (OSes) and software work? Apr 6, 2017 at 3:05

There is no site on the Stack Exchange network where you can ask such a question. The reason for this: it is a discussion-type question rather than an fixed question that addresses a specific problem and can be answered in a single answer.

Here is the rule for posting on the Stack Overflow site (and correct me if I am wrong, but this applies to all sites part of the Stack Exchange network):

You should only ask practical, answerable questions based on actual problems that you face. Chatty, open-ended questions diminish the usefulness of our site and push other questions off the front page. - Stack Overflow - Help Center
