[Sidefx-houdini-list] Houdini performance on Windows 7 vs Linux

I installed it yesterday and compared a render and a fluid simulation. 
The sim was a bit faster than on Ubuntu and the render was just a little 
bit faster. I'm very impressed about that.

I haven't finished to install all my other applications but so far 
everything works nicely. The only thing that bugs me is the new 
"improved" Windows Explorer where the lines height in detail view are 
way to large. Anyway, not much to complain about :)
