Speed of VS2005.

Is it me or is the speed of VS2005 actually slower than VS2003?
The startup is pretty bad - even though I changed VS to display an empty
environment. When I create a new form and want to change its size:
while I am resizing, an hour glass comes up for a few seconds.

There a lot of other slowdowns all over the system. It seems like it the
hard drive kicks in really hard.

Now I did have the VS2005 beta installed, but I uninstalled it and
cleaned the laptop per instructions on various msdn blogs.

Is anybody else experiencing these issues? And is there a fix for all
these?

Thanks.

Could you please explain your point. I have a VS2003 winforms application
that has been comverted to VS2005. The performance is not good. Do I have
a poorly architected application or is VS2005 running slow?

Are you talking about apps generated with VS2005 or the speed of VS2005
itself?

My own non-scientific experience has been that VS2005 is slower (specially
at startup/project load) than VS2003, but apps generated with VS2005 are
faster (sometimes much faster) than those generated with VS2003. As I said
it is all empirical and unscientific, and I don't know if the speed is due
to a better compiler or a better framework.

I do know, though, that I have felt like shooting myself many times while
waiting for my web projects to recompile with VS2005...

I am talking about VS2005 (the IDE) itself. I was unable to google any
guides for making it faster (other than the obvious). Any pointers?

The more RAM the better, although it makes little difference after about 1.5
to 2 GB, unless you are loading up many instances of VS2005.

Is it slower than the beta? Are the options set differently? Things to look
at are the "help configuration" options and the add-ins installed.

You said you are noticing high hard drive activity , when exactly are you
noticing this? Did you try to find out what is actualy done on disk?
How much free memory do you have before and after vs is started?
How much free memory do you have before and after a project is loaded or
created?

I think it's a bit slower in general, but have you checked the options
set for your startup page? Is it loading news from MS maybe?
