LC on Windows - slow for others or just me?

I'm on a Win 10 VM using a raid array for my VHD. At times autocorrect
causes editing long scripts(2000+) to get on the other side of prohibitively
slow. Other times it's OK. Don't have a recipe yet. How do you turn off
autocorrect again? Populating text fields is 5-10% slower than v8. Taking 5
- 10 seconds to Launch LC seems slow until I launch Photoshop or InDesign
and lose a few minutes of my life that I will never get back. Launching is
not an issue for me. Richard, What is slow for you? PB, control creation,
scrolling, editing or running scripts... or yes?

Okay, granted, I usually run Win 10 in a VM.

But every other program seems pretty snappy, barely distinguishable from a
bare-metal install.

And then there's LiveCode.  I'm running v9, and it's slower than molasses in

Is this just my setup, or are other Windows users finding LiveCode 9 at the
edge of prohibitively slow on Win10?
