I did some tests on Windows, and posted results a few months ago in this 
list. Basically the main problem is that NTFS directory  creation 
operations are really slow (I'm guessing it's the journalling that's 
interfering here). I must also say that I was creating something like 
over 10'000 files in my tests.

I don't have figure against CQFS but I do have some against Object 
serialization and my ORM persistence managers. The results are a bit 
dated now but they should be indicative of the problem of slow file 
creation under Windows.

You can find the results of my tests here :

Please note these are not very scientific, I was mostly trying to check 
if my ORM persistence managers where performing decently than actually 
trying to spend a lot of time on testing procedures.
