This is probably more of a rant than anything else. I'm currently helping on an opensource project for geostats and have a laptop with Windows on (for work purposes) and a desktop at home with Linux installed.
On the Linux environment I have KDevelop 4.6 installed and love it to bits. I really like Visual Studio as well and I really like the dark theme it has going on.
When compiling though, I HATE Visual Studio. When building the solution (not rebuilding) it takes longer (approx 15 minutes) than KDevelop takes to REBUILD the project.
Does anyone have ideas on how to get the times down on Visual Studio?
What I've tried so far is:
Under Tools->Options->Projects and Solutions->Build and Run I set the MSBuild output to Quiet (Was hoping less output would mean quicker compile times)
Right click on solution->Properties->Common Properties->Copy Local (Once again hoping that less copying would mean quicker compile times)
and a couple more things.
It's really pathetic that there is such a massive difference! Also, there are only 17 projects in the solution so it's not even that many.
Thanks for reading!
