Hi Shondoit,

Thanks for taking time!

Would you be interested in the opposite? That is, a (slightly) dirty
default install of Windows 7 (x64), and a clean VM with a default
install of Windows XP SP3? Alternatively, I could install XP into a new
partition on HDD, if you'd prefer.

Could you please expand on this? I haven't used Git via mingw and I
don't much feel like taking the time to RTFM ;)

P.S. How would one go about using your work for profile build(s) to test
benefits of something like [0,1]?

loading speed, etc."
