General Development Even though I'm not a programmer, I still know that while some programmers like the idea of graphical programming, whereas others shun the concept completely, opting for a more hands-on approach. While Microsoft is quite active in the field of graphical programming, the company's own high-level coders aren't very keen on the idea.

I'd choose a more powerful computer if that's what it takes to get the IDE running smoothly - for anything but small projects, I'd hate not having powerful code navigation features.

Visual Studio 2008 is a breeze even on a relatively modest computer (2GHz dualcore laptop (which means slow HDD) and 2GB ram). Compiling can take a bit of time for release builds of C++ code using lots of templates, but debug builds are usually just fine ;)
