Installing/reinstalling AS on some computers I chose to make sure I get the latest 6.2 SP1; after starting the environment I noted how long that took loading, but at first I just thought it related to a "first start syndrome".
Now, every time I start it, appears to be unreasonably slow (from a user's perspective). Checking its memory footprint, I see it takes around 570 MB (plus 21 MB for atbackend.exe) with no project loaded - sheesh!
Did anybody else find it to be a bit overweight as I do?
Don't have at hand a VS 2012/2013 instance to compare (maybe they are comparable?), but a humble VS 2010 runs at 135 MB, in a very shorter time.
