I have a working setup where I could test Unbound vs. MS DNS (the setup
where I do regression tests on the Unbound packages I compile) and would
be very interested in the results as well. The machines are not too
powerful (dual-core with 8GB RAM) compared to todays standards.

I'm pretty busy the next two weeks, but could do the tests later in June
(if that helps).

Is the query about comparing Unbound on Windows with MS DNS, or
comparing Unbound on Unix/Linux with Win DNS?
