IECHost client 3.0 under testing

I got to a point where I think version 3.0 of the IECHost GUI client is ready for being published, so I started doing some testing.

I am seeing significant differences in read times for sector-by-sector dumping under Windows and Linux. As example, for a BAM-based read of one of my test disks, under Windows 10 the operation took roughly 13 seconds:

Under Ubuntu 16 it took half the time:

It took even less on a Raspberry Pi 3 Model B:

I shall investigate and try to find out the root cause of the significant difference between Windows and Linux.

Stay tuned!
