It is nonsense here, because it is off-topic.
But I did not start the "off topic" discussion. A bunch of other people did. I was only participating in an already existing discussion of HDD versus SSD in this thread.
The performance of WD is dependent upon what type of drive that it runs.
What's Storage type got to do with Antivirus Software?
Isn't it that badly coded & non-optimised software will run like crap regardless of the storage type or speed??
All software runs faster on SSD. WD isn't well optimized for HDD but it is fast on SSD due to the drive technology. So whatever shortcomings it had on HDD are no longer relevant on SSD.
Somebody, actually multiple people, made the claim here that WD is terrible on HDD because Microsoft didn't put any effort into making WD I\O more efficient. The argument is that Microsoft is a trillion dollar company and therefore it somehow owes something to the world - namely making WD uber fast for security geeks that actually care about WD speed on HDD.
Then they talk about WD being so slow when opening huge size files (whether it be on HDD or SSD). When you tell them they can exclude those files (and do on-demand manual scans instead of real-time) to eliminate all the problems, those very same people deliberately remain silent.
Microsoft always focuses on current hardware technology. It makes only a "best effort" to be compatible with older software and hardware technology.
It amazes me that these facts are such massive emotional triggers here at MalwareTips. I just don't get it.
