Every time a new Rust release comes out, I try to update all the VSCode relevant plugins.

It takes me more than one hour on a core duo with 8 GB + HDD, while I occasionally see the same crates being compiled and get to do something else.

I could probably buy a new computer, as this one isn't something that one can easily parallelize, but why should I when my C++ builds are actually fast enough?

I am just an opinated Rust dabbler, please take my complaint as contributing feedback about what I see as one possible show stopper for Windows developers to adopt Rust, vs our current .NET + C++ workflow, in terms of productivity.

Thanks for Rust.
