Slow startup time

From the list of known issues:

"If you open solution and then enable ReSharper, there is quite long lag
before ReSharper initialization progress dialog appears"

Any idea when this will be addressed?

Although it has improved a lot since the early EAP's I do still find that
there is still a lot of room for startup performance improvements. I have
tried to convince members of my team to use Resharper but once they install
the EAP and try it out the first thing they do is remove it because of the
slow startup times.

I've been following these threads about 'slow startup time' for a while now.
I agree that bugs should be fixed, and if this is a bug, then the JetBrains
should fix it; from past performance, they probably will.  I've been
developing software for a large fraction of a century now, so maybe I'm old
fashioned, but I am constantly amused at the comments like '...it takes 8
more seconds to open VS 2005 and it keeps developers from using it.'

I have watched developers start up VS and stare at the screen for 20 seconds
before navigating to pages to start work.  I have seen them spend 30 seconds
creating blocks of code that R# creates with a few keystrokes in a second.
I have seen them using Edit -> Find to locate method usages and then modify
the wrong ones.  This list can go on forever.

The amount of productivity time a tool like R# can save far outweighs any
additional start up time required.  I don't hear anyone complaining about
the amount of time VS takes to load when compared to Notepad as an IDE!

Perhaps the concept of 'dinosaur' shouldn't just apply to us 'senior
citizens' of the Technology community.

As Dennis Miller would say (back when he was fresh and original), 'Just my
opinion, I could be wrong...'
