I am also a developer, and I have the opposite opinion that you do. For simple user apps, performance probably doesn't matter, but when you have an application where performance matters, it *really* matters. The compilation time might need some improvement, but it isn't that bad. If your compile times really bother you that much, maybe you need to a) check that your makefiles/buildscripts don't recompile the whole world when you change one file b) get a faster development machine or c) look into something like distcc
The amount of time I spend waiting on compiles is trivial compared to the amount of time I have to wait for a test run of my code to complete.
