For some reason, somewhere in the back of my mind I seem to recall MS
getting caught doing exactly that - having an OS (it may have been as
far back as DOS) which intentionally ran certain programs slower than
the competing MS applications. I tried a few searches but didn't find
anything, so I could be misremembering.

Java I/O (or at least Tomcat's) does seem ludicrously slow on Windows
vs. other OSes. I always assumed it was Java not being optimized for
it on the platform, but why Sun would allow that when they're
constantly fighting the "Java is slow" perception is beyond me.
