They have a screenshot showing that Perl performance through AndLinux is better than native Perl on Windows and better than on Linux through a virtual machine.

Last I checked, it may be different now, but Git support on Windows wasn't that great.

For some reason, I like using the NEdit text editor which has no Windows port.
