I was trying to do a git pull from GitHub this morning from the windows CLI (actually, Cygwin xterm) and it was horribly slow.  Most of the time I just CTRL-C out of it and go to PhpStorm and work from their git integration, but I had to do something weird and decided to look into it.Continue Reading “Really slow git on Windows (aka Windows Antimalware service executable is making it slow)”
