Yes, that's what I meant - the DOS client is unter Windows faster than the
Windows client, whether the machine is used or not. The Windows client
gives me about 350 to 400 kkeys/sec when the computer is busy, and 450 to
500 when it's not. The DOS client in a Window gives me around 500 to
550kkeys/sec. When run in pure DOS, I get 634.2 kkeys/sec constant.
