Work laptop: Get-Process | Export-Csv "PathToFile"

Takes 30 seconds and my machine's fan takes off, heating a small nation for a year.

Linux laptop: ps ax > file

Less than a second and my computer doesn't even blink.

@ndegruchy To be sure, even if I run Windows on my own computer, it's fast like Linux, while my work computers act like molasses. I think it's that the company-provided laptops are so loaded down with security stuff etc that they barely work.

Windows is hard to use. Today I have to change my win10 virtual machine's DNS server. Search -> control panel -> network -> interface -> properties -> ipv4 protocol -> DNS

Linux: /etc/resolve.conf <<

Windows is definitely for the pro.
