Visual Studio 2010 is slower than Visual Studio 2008?

If you need to use Visual Studio, have you tried Visual Studio 2010?
I just got the Ultimate version installed and browsing through.

On first sight, the darker background color make it looks 'smaller'. For example, words like Solution Explorer. I compared it with Visual Studio 2008, the font size are actually the same. It looks smaller due to the dark color. Well, illusion...

I created a simple Windows application project, add a button and do some simple operation. Well, I felt Visual Studio 2010 run slower than Visual Studio 2008. It took slightly longer time in creating a project, building the project and also run the project. The intellisense seems to be slightly different and a little slower too. From google results, seems like I am not alone. Anyway, let's see how it goes when I get a chance to use it more later. I am comparing Visual Studio 2010 Ultimate with Visual Studio 2008 Team System. I am not sure if this is an apple-to-apple comparison, but I assume those are compatible version, just named differently.

This is Visual Studio 2010 start up page. Enjoy coding :)

One thing that I am disappointed with VS10 is they have taken out the dynamic help, which has really helped me a lot.
I hope they will put it back...
