Git uses the filesystem heavily, and tends to rely on it being fast
(and in particular on operations with a "hot cache" being very fast).

The negative impact of Window's much slower FS is a well-known issue
for git.  A system developed with Windows in mind might, for instance,
do much more caching in memory instead.
