performance hit is, I think, completely understandable. But there definitely 
is/was something else going on when developing under Windows. As other threads 
have amply demonstrated, V9 introduced a massive performance hit, and it's my 
understanding that those issues have been somewhat or wholly addressed in 

I will be corrected if inaccurate.
