2.23 Compilation build time and operating system choice

Your choice of operating system can affect compilation build time.

Linux generally gives better build speeds than Windows.

However, if you are using Windows, there are ways to tune the performance of the operating system at a general level. This might help with increasing the percentage of processor time that is being used for your build.

At a simple level, turning off virus checking software can help, but an Internet search for "tune windows performance" provides plenty of information.
