Filesystem slow compared with native Ubuntu system.

http://www.phoronix.com/scan.php?page=article&item=windows-10-lxcore&num=1

Lists some benchmarks across Ubuntu and this subsystem. It is very competitive with Native Ubuntu Linux, except when it comes to filesystem access.

Filesystem access is important for compilation, as well as the thousands of "watcher" js and ruby programs that constantly touch the filesystem, which are the stated target market.

So, find a way to speed that up. (I don't know how you are currently mounting the filesystem, so I can't offer any ideas, other than removes as many layers as possible to the filesystem.)

If you are using the ntfs systems in Linux, you might consider implementing an improved version for Ubuntu to use, and Open sourcing it would be nice.
