CVSNT does No we know it's slower, but you can't compare across platforms like that... Windows running cvsnt 1.11 back in the day was a fair bit slower than the Unix running the same code. One of the biggies for speed is antivirus - if you're running realtime scanning it'll more than halve your checkout speed easily - that should be switched off or at least excluded from the repository/temp directories. Same goes for the client sandboxes. There are other things like checking out to shared sandboxes, having slow connections to the domain controller, shortage of memory. cvsnt is slower but as you say it does a lot more.. it's not two and a half times slower though.
