No, quite difficult to get good results unter WinNT too. (And Win98, of course.)

On WinNT (PII 400MHz, 64MB RAM, S/P-Dif-Interface, SCSI HDs) I can hardly play 4
mono files without any pops (it would work when only playing files, the soon I start
to do anything else with pd - especially gem ! - the result is horrible).
I know, there are many people complaining about Win in general, but other software
(Cubase VST, Samplitude...) does the job... so, same problem as on linux
