Re: cygwin too slow

Hey Cygwin users,
     After using UNIX desktops for nearly seven years now, I'm forced to use
a windows desktop. Since I knew a thing like cygwin existed, I installed the
complete set of packages and I was thrilled. But simple commands like ls
take this time

$ time ls -l
total 23

sys     0m0.010s

Likewise any utility I try to use like vi, emacs etc just take really long.
I'm not sure how  I could debug this. I did try to use strace etc, but got
no clues. Searching the archives also did not help me. BTW, I use Win 2000
Pro on a DELL Box with 512MB RAM and at this time, top shows this:

Thanks for any help !
