If you are using VS 2005 consider upgrading your graphics card.
We noticed right a way that the IDE was slow and sluggish using the integrated, on board graphics card that came with our machines. We updated to a 128MB graphics card and it made a world of difference in speed within the IDE. The IDE in 2005 is graphics heavy and the new card really helps.
In case you have not heard, and who has not, MIX07 is this week and Microsoft is making all kinds of news.
We just switched to 2.0 and now all of this? Yikes, more reading to do I guess! That is why I love this industry, there is always something to learn.
So we moved to Framework 2.0 yesterday. We spent about 4 weeks cleaning up our code prior, enough to get a clean compile. We are seeing some strange visual things when running our app but overall so far so good.
