Re: Big repositories with a Windows server

I also think people believe that Windows has a slow filesystem when
looking at numerous files in the shell. It's not that the filesystem is
slow when looking at a couple thousand files in Windows Explorer, it's
the fact that the shell has to open each one to read the file metadata
and draw the file icon. But how often do you browse the server side
files? Not very often, and even when I do admin work on the svn
repository, it's through the command line (we run our server on Windows,
no problems).
