Why does Linux operate like this? It seems to be a rather curious way in which Windows and Linux is different.

I once tried with the client on a Mac LCII with NetBSD...) can take several MINUTES to do all the key exchange work. Also, plan in half an hour for generating the keys when installing ...

I could be wrong, but it seems the former is actually less work than the latter. Of course, there is value in a general compatibility layer that works for the cli, but compilers are arguably a ...
