This is not a scientific examination, but a personal observation.

I noted that developing using the Mac IDE is faster than on Windows, except for saving the project. I am in the process of developing a rather complicated application that will be cross-platform (Mac - Windows) and did a simple compile timing test.

I compiled the project in Windows (Win7 64-bit running in WMware 5.0) and it took about 32 seconds to compile. I did this test 3 times. Compile, quit app, re-compile, quit app, re-compile. All times were within a second of each other - 31 or 32 seconds plus some change.

I then compiled the same project on the Mac (Mountain Lion - latest patches) and the first compile takes 29 seconds. Subsequent compiles took 11.2 seconds. WTF!

Is this normal and what is different on the Mac than on Windows? Incremental compiles on the Mac but not on Windows?

Eventually vmware is consuming a bit of the cpu recources?

If that were the case, then why did the initial Mac compile come within 2 seconds of the Windows compile?
