Re: Slow cygwin performance

I installed cygwin a few weeks ago and it has always been very slow.
At first I only needed to perform a few tests (I usually work using a
linux VM) so I didn't look too much into it, but now I might need to
use it more and it is simply not usable.

About every command I do takes about 15 seconds to execute. The delay
seems to come after the command has executed. So if I do "ls" I see
the contents of the directory almost immediately but then I get a
delay before getting back my prompt.
