I say nice things to my "crappy" vista so that it wont crash and hang.
If i'm in a bad mood I curse Windows and <removed> why it takes so long to boot up every reset.

@dnepr Agreed, though I only have the "main machine at home." I usually read one or two forum posts before the sim is up and running.

What is your work style like?
Myself, I like to make small changes and test them out on the simulator. But with this style I am spending a lot of time waiting for the simulator.
I so wish I could speed this up.

In debug mode? I must be doing something wrong!
When you say in debug mode, I assume you mean attaching the JDE to the simulator. Yeah, it takes less than a minute.
I usually let the simulator running all the time. When I need to debug my app, I load the cod into the simulator, then attach the jde to it. The whole process does take less than a minute except the first time.

Does anyone else see the problem with this question?
Developers shouldn't have to wait for a simulator to boot. It is simply a waste of time.

"Does anyone else see the problem with this question?"
I think everyone does. The problem is a given, the question is what we do about it! A light hearted discussion around this topic doesn't hurt does it?
I suspect RIM are well aware that faster Simulators are a good thing. Especially since their developers must use them all the time.

Agreed, though to be fair, Android simulators require booting as well. It's definitly come a good ways though, I remeber when it took 10min to start... or maybe that was just a slower computer.
