speeding things up...

I just thought of something and was curious... Currently there is a
productivity hint stuff going on in the background, gathering
statistics... I wonder if turning that off would actually give us back
a little performance. I don't know how much impact this productivity
guide puts on IDEA, but I only look at it when I have a new install and
I need to turn off the hint stuff from showing up during compile. Seems
that if I don't need to know how to be more productive, simply because
you don't really care, we could perhaps just turn that off and save
'bandwidth' in the app? or is the difference so minimal that it really
doesn't matter... though that would surprise me since you persist this
information in some fashion to a file on every change or project close
or something.

It seems we're able to alleviate the speed of the editor by turning off
inspections... maybe we can turn this off too.

Also why is it that turning off showing hints in various places is done
out of the Help | productivity guide, somewhere I would have never
thought to look until someone mentioned it a couple of weeks ago, and
not moved to the appearance panel where it seems more appropriate.

Thanks

Gathering prod. hint statistic doesn't cost a measurable thing. Something
like taking an object from the HashMap and icrementing integer couter in
it every time trackable action is performed.
