 Hi All --

Have you noticed that VS2012 is working in "semi-hanging" mode when authoring XAML in VS2012? By "semi-hanging" I mean that almost every action of editing and saving XAML makes VS2012 unoperational (not reacting on mouse clicks etc.) for a few seconds, intellisense stops working etc.etc. - after working with plain WinForms' projects where everything happens instantly I'm getting a bit crazy about this "feature". BTW, relatively small Silvelight Business Apps (former WCF RIA Services) solutions do take between between 10 and 20+ seconds for compilation/building - because of background code generation I guess taking that much time on every compilation cycle... 

I have Intel i7, 12GB. And as I have noticed on the same system, the same time in parallel VS2012 instances WinForms projects are flying...

Should I switch to Win10 and/or VS2015 ASAP?

Thank you.
