You bet.

With Windows it *is* "normal". An experienced software developer
once even explained the reason to me. When a single process on Windows
does I/O, then the system essentially falls back to "single tasking".
Or (non-)"cooperative multitasking" at best, depending on how
dissocial the developer of that process is.

Well, because you only "managed" those computers, you never tried to
accomplish actual *work* with them.

Windows itself is the problem.

Won't change anything.
