It takes us about 4 minutes to open a representative assembly with about 1500 unique parts over our 1Gb network from a win7 x64 box, core I7, 16GB ram, SSD. Messing around I tried loading the same model from another win7 computer (about a generation older) with SSD. Well it took about 2 min to load the same file.
I figured the SSD was the main reason for the change but then I installed Ubuntu and Debian and was back to 4-5 minutes with the same hardware. I was surprised because I always assumed Linux/Samba would be faster than Windows.
Another issue is that if we try to open the assembly read-only because somebody already has it open, it takes liek 3-4 times longer. Yet when I tried that on the Win 7 to Win 7 it was only about 50% slower.
Any thoughts or experiences.
