I'm using VS2005 and the 30-day trial Sapphire developer version.
When I try to open large projects (a lot of files) VS locks up and it takes like 30 minutes for the project to open (project is 2000 files aprox).
I have a 2.2Ghz processor and 2gb of ram.
I read http://sapphiresteel.com/forum/index.php?topic=144.msg534#msg534
, it's exactly what happens to me.
I also created a C# solution and included the same folder with the same amount of files and it took 20 seconds to load all the files.
So there is something that the loading project proccess for ruby is doing that is killing my machine.
I also tried on different machines and the same happens.
