Design-time perf improvements in Visual Studio 2008

Some metrics that we captured on my project: (I think the numbers speak for themselves)

Operation     VS 2005     VS 2008           % Improvement
Start the IDE 00:30 00:09 70%
Load solution 03:45 00:45 80%
Get Latest (no changes) 00:13 00:05 62%
Rebuild solution 02:21 01:58 16%
Run all tests 05:29 03:44 32%
Start the application 00:19 00:18 5%

FYI our solution has 33 projects in it (including a database project, a web application project, numerous DLLs, an EXE and a WiX installer) and there are almost 1,600 unit and integration tests.
