I'm just starting to try out Prima (in hopes of writing an image
viewer/cataloger program). I was trying out the example program ''
(image viewer) with a large file (8 megapixels) to get an idea of
performance, and I noticed that it was significantly faster under linux (1-2
seconds to open and display) than under Windows (6-8 seconds). That's using
the Windows binaries downloaded from the Prima homepage, and compiling from
scratch on Linux.

Is this normal behavior/performance for Prima on Windows?
Will compiling Prima myself under Windows help?
Or is there something else I can do to improve performance under Windows?

I got an announcement recently for a conference on
massively parallel computing systems.

They sent me 600 copies.
