There is an overhead in running on a VM, yes. I would have guessed it was 
negligible, but I might be wrong. 

It also depends what partition or filesystem the Git repository is located 
on. Here's somebody with a similar 
 the Git repository in a "shared folder", which is also slow.

Can you tell us the absolute path of your Git repository on the Ubuntu 
image, along with the output of running '*mount*' and '*df*'?
