Very much so! On a Win2k with Dual P3 1Ghz Zope runs slower than the same
install on a Linux box with 1 P133 !!!! (I have tested this on multiple
different configurations and every time it comes out the same)

I have yet to find any platform independant product that runs faster on
windows. The only things on windows that are faster are programs that use
windows specific APIs (Mainly designed to _prevent_ platform independance).

Best bet:- Go get a 300 ($450) pc and install Linux on it and use your
Windows box for what windows is good at (Sugestions anyone???) - This is
what I did, and the results were not at all disappointing.
