I suggest anyone having problems to add
constructive details on that bug. For example profiler output when repeatedly
performing a slow operation, what plugins are installed, whether it is
reproducible with vanilla Eclipse SDK, etc. There are some users reporting
pervasive slowdowns, and for many others it is performing well. Something
like a listener leak could have effects like this in conjunction with particular
installed plugins. It takes time after any major release to isolate and
resolve problems like this.

For various reasons I had to switch my development environment from 4.2
to 3.8 today. I was stunned by the performance improvement after the switch.
The 3.8 platform is much MUCH faster. It boots faster, it closes windows
faster, it shows menus faster, etc. It also seems to consume less memory
and be less buggy. The way things stand right now, there's just no way
I'll switch back to 4.2!
I must say I was very surprised by this. Why is the 4.2 platform what's
being fronted on the Eclipse download page when it's user experience and
quality is lagging behind this much? Is it just me who have had this experience?
