I've already written such a cookbook for Windows and Linux in German
language. And in the beginning, I had equal problems on Windows.
But since the, many things - like the python scripts - changed. Since I
can script in Python, I fixed them for myself. Perhaps I will find some
time in January to publish them.
Overall, the performance is _much_ better on Linux than on Windows, using
the same hardware.
