On Windows we had an issue with the corporate virus scanner at my
previous employer; checking out a repo (of only approx 10MB) took
several minutes on the Windows boxes unless the virus scanner was told
to ignore our source code directory; after which it dropped to 20-30
seconds or so.

On a Linux box, it always took 10-15 seconds to check out, but we did
have the native EOL set so the Windows clients had to do a bit more work
than the Linux client (and the server was on another Linux box)
