Windows executable startup *is* much slower than on Linux, because
especially the Win32 subsystem is doing quite some house keeping with IPC,
etc. there. I'm still looking forward to somewhen test the compiler on
NativeNT which does not have that overhead :)

Because programmers don't try to optimize for speed anymore since you just
need to buy faster hardware to make the program run faster :/
