I was unhappy with VS 2010 performance on my machine:
OS Name Microsoft Windows XP Professional
Version 5.1.2600 Service Pack 3 Build 2600
System Type X86-based PC
Processor x86 Family 6 Model 37 Stepping 5 GenuineIntel ~2393 Mhz
Total Physical Memory 4,096.00 MB
Graphics: Intel HD graphics, internal 128mb

Is there any suggestions?
