It is understandable that there are speed problems with large Cygwin
applications (Cygwin is a layer on top of Windows, after all). Some of
these problems might be alleviated by the ongoing work on Cygwin and the
applications themselves. Some are inevitable, and are the price one pays
for POSIX compatibility. Perhaps Joe Buehler (the Cygwin Emacs package
maintainer) will have more insight into those issues.
P.S. I don't use Emacs, so I don't care one way or another. Vim is fast
