Why does Drive Cleanser 6.0 take so long time?

    I have wiped my 20 GB disk, once using Acronis Drive Cleanser 6.0 and secondly using the opensource product DBAN, based on Linux.
    In both cases I used the "Gutmann Method".

    But what I can´t unterstand is, that DBAN took about 20 hours, whereas Drive Cleanser took about 10 hours.

    I`ve never heard anyone complaining about DBAN, that it does not work carefully.

    What could be the reason therefore?
    Could it be, that DBAN is based on Linux?
    Thanks
