Upgrading Windows system/compiler

Today, we have upgraded our Windows build machine to shiny new Intel P4 with HT, 800 FSB, 1GB RAM, SATA WD Raptor 36G disk (10000 rpm). But this is not everything. We have also replaced old MS VC6 compiler with .NET 2002 and upgraded our build system to it.

We are curios how this affects the time needed for complete builds.

New compiler allows us to "fix" #i21646# and also start building devel branches on Windows.

Many thanks to our sponsors (who paid for the machine) and especially to Josef Cacek and Radim Peša from Institute of Computer Science (Masaryk University Brno, my alma mater) who managed the whole administrative/technical burden of this process and let me work on things I like to/I know.
