Agreed :( Remind me to not switch to Vista any time soon.
But no different than using the Linux mount flag of NOATIME - except that
with Linux, you can make the decision on a per-mount basis rather than
globally, and the decision is not forced on you by a default installation.
atime updates really do lead to slower performance, so even though POSIX
requires atime on non-read-only file systems, I can understand the
performance gain for skipping it.
Don't work too hard, make some time for fun as well!
