is vs.net slow for others as well?

You know, this is my first day using VS.NET 2005 and, although it has some
impressive new features, there are parts that they did not put together
well.

Does anyone else experience a periodical hang when in the editor? It seams
that every now and then, the IDE seems to stop accepting input (well it is
buffered) as if it is doing some processing. This halt can be anywhere from
half a second to a couple seconds. Very annoying when I am in the middle of
typing code to have everything just stop for no apparent reason.

This is weird because I am running vs.net on a 2.5 GHz machine.

How much memory do you have?

Jan 22 '06 #2
Hello,

My VSTS Team Suite runs like a doll on my regular laptop 2.0ghz 1.5gb memory
but is a pain on my rental I'm currently using (a good single malt and laptops
just dont mix) with same processor but just 512mb of memory.

Peter,
I run it on an Windows Server 2003 x64 edition with 2 GB RAM, and
performance is acceptable. Sometimes it seems to take a while to start up.
However there are known bugs in the IDE (e.g. the infamous "Bouma Bug") that
can cause issues. So, depending on what you are doing, you could possibly be
running into these, most of which seem to be centered around a lack of
complete testing of the Intellisense infrastructure before RTM.
Peter

Hello Peter,

don't you know that Microsoft and memory manufacturs are allies in a cartell
;)

I believe that the least memory you need for a smooth experience is 1gb,
I would go for 2 to be on the safe side.

I am running VS2005 pro on my laptop (intel centrino 1.73gHz with 512MB)
and it runs at a very acceptable speed.

Is your system have a dual processor or does it support hyperthreading or
the like? While I havn't had any trouble in VS.NET 2005 itself(havn't used
it enough really, and we all know how weird threading issues can be) on my
machine(dual, hyperthreaded), I have seen sporadic slowdowns that no one
else seems to have noticed in other apps that seem to go away when I change
processor affinity to just one virtual processor.

Just a thought.
