Win 8? Gross. I use Win 7 (both at work and home), and no, my company
doesn't have any SSD drives. 4 GB RAM isn't bad, but I have better at home.
And I do use VS (both 2010 and 2012). I've always just put up with the
slowness; it's something I can't change. (Besides, you don't know slow
until you've tried to open ArcMap with an MXD from a client in another
network where all the layers use network paths or tried to run an Oracle
Spatial query that intersects a polygon with thousands of other polygons
with a high vertex count.) My answer to that problem is I wait until I'm
not in the middle of something to install Tortoise so I can reboot. You can
do it at the start of the day before you open everything up, or at the end
when you're about to leave after you've closed everything down. Windows
requires reboots for some things. It's a fact of life, so I make it part of
my daily routine to keep it from being a catastrophe when it's required and
also to try to keep things running more smoothly. It also helps me keep
down the clutter on my machine. 5-10 minutes a day is not a huge deal to
me, but maybe I'm in the minority.
