i7 with 8G RAM, non-SSD Drive (need to change that):
I have both VS 2017 and VS 2019 installed. When loading the same project in each, it does feel like VS 2019 is faster in loading itself and the solution. As far as the actual build and intellisense and such, I don't see that great a difference.
On a different note, I would say that the quality of the editor and such is somewhat better. I have been moving my code to .Net Core 3.0, and it seems make this a straightforward (if not automatic) process.
ASROCK X99 Extreme4/3.1... uses the 2011 cpu socket and has 8 ram slots that can hold a 16GB module each. It's an older board but still good... I think they are up to X299 for the Intel chipset now, tho that is a 2066 socket instead of the 2011. AMD beat them to the punch by registering X399 so no idea what the next Intel x?99 will be.
VS2019 is definitely no worse than VS2017 and I like VS2017.
Updated to 16.1.3 today and the grump I had, which was slow intellisense (to the point where you have to wait 5-10 seconds for red marks to disappear - or stay), seems to have evaporated.
So, yeah, I'll adopt it (again).
That is a too many amount of pop-ups requiring authorizations and consent, and switching-off of script-blocking for me to bother going on. I have to switch off private browsing to read a Post article ? Nee.
With my grand kids that's called a melt down, or what we used to call a childish temper tantrum.
They throw a fit until momma gives in, sometimes takes more than a single meltdown but they always get what they want.
