Guid uses RngCryptoServiceProvider which, like Zoltan said on comment #7, needs
some entropy to get results. 

Now the implementation of RngCryptoServiceProvider of it is totally different
from Windows (comment #2) where CryptoAPI is used and Linux (comment #3) where
/dev/random is used. So its pretty weird that you get the same, huge, delay on
both operating systems.
