I suggest you ...

Make "Go To Definition" faster (C++)

Clicking on that option often takes 5-10 seconds and it completely hangs the GUI.

        Can agree, VS2010 is a remarkable performance drawdown, not only in the context
        of declarations and definitions. The focus of the MS team seams to be on the wrong point
        such as colors.
        Instead of making intelli sense bulletproof (in comparison to vs2008) and making or object
        information faster (declaration / definition) or compiling faster or better support for shared
        precompiled header, it seems they like to think about features making the studio more fat
        and less responisve. Nobody, who is working seriously, can appreciate that.

        If this is about the Intellisense, than I can totally agree. Every vs release since 2003, it actually becomes worse instead of better. We have a 100 project solution with over 3000 files in it and Intellisense takes sometimes ages. It got me thinking that Intellisense activities are assigned to fresh junior programmers or so. And it can be so much faster. The workspace whiz add-in (using ctags) is lightning fast. After making the first index, search is almost instantaneously.

        Also it would be very nice to have some build in functionality for *.h/*.cpp file switch. There is a lot of ready to use macros on the internet, but it could have better performance if it will be implemented as native feature.
