It's unsurprising that a POSIX program ported straight to an
independently developed, properly done POSIX layer performs better
than a version of that program hacked to directly target the platform.

(By the way, what do you mean by 50% faster? 50% faster than 3 minutes
is 2 minutes).

kernel with sluggish filesystem operations?
