I've been doing software development for my personal projects on Windows OS since college, and I just started dual booting Ubuntu...

How did I not realize how slow Windows was for coding until now? Holy. The customization of Ubuntu is insane.

    Because you didn't put an exception on the directory you are compiling code in for the built in antivirus. The antivirus built into Windows 10 will scan every file your compiler touches and creates WHILE YOU COMPILE. So you have to tell it to ignore that directory/directories. Same issue with installing updates to development software because of the thousands of source files in big libraries.

    @Demolishun I‘m not sure but I don’t think that drewbie actually meant compiling.
    But 'slow' isn‘t exactly the first problem that comes into my mind when thinking about coding on Windows 😄

    @Lensflare The slow I ran into was related to antivirus. I do development in both linux and windows. I don't see a whole lot of difference.
