    I did some researches/comparisons on how the two version of Visual Studio works. 2015 vs 2013 and below are my concerns..

    I run on both scenario the same soultion (83 projects, VB .Net)
    My PC's config:
    OS Name:
    Microsoft Windows 7 Enterprise
    Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-3720QM CPU @ 2.60GHz, 2601 Mhz, 4 Core(s), 8 Logical Processor(s)
    Installed Physical Memory (RAM): 16,0 GB

    Visual Studio 2015 Enterprise:

    When I run building/compilation on solution I found in task manager:
    - 8 x MSBuild.exe each per c.a. 30MB
    - 2 x VBCSCompiler.exe each per c.a. 1.2GB
    - 11 x conhost.exe each per c.s. 2MB

    What is really problematic no one of above processes are killed after finishing the building porocess.

    Microsoft Visual Studio Premium 2013

    When I run the same solution (83 projects, VB .Net) and started rebuilding process, in task manager I found one.. literally one MSBuild process.

    What is even more sad the time consumed for overall building process is comparable on both versions of Visual Studio.
    As you can noticed above my pc is not maybe the fastest one, but from the other hand is not the scrap.

    I would also mention that even after finishing the compilation process often VS 2015 text editor is blinking what prevents from editing.

    Something ordinary is falling into frozen mode and message that "Visual studio is busy..." I know he processes something in background but why so often?
    Please do something with the performance in VS 2015.

    Best Regards,
