Sporadically people have posted some numbers. Somebody a while back had some
pretty detailed ones about forking and network stuff compared to Linux IIRC.
Somebody, perhaps someone much like myself only not as lazy, should set up some
sort of automated script and get some gnuplots going showing Cygwin's
performance as a function of time. But then people in hell want icewater too.

Slower than... not running at all? I don't follow.
