Really? You find bjam recompilation to be slower than Visual Studio?

By the way, its not so difficult to set up VS.NET to use bjam as the
build tool. You have to use a makefile project setting.

The only reason I would use the redundant Visual Studio projects is for
the guess and click interface, mainly to easily navigate the project
files... Would be much easier if they allowed you to recursively add
folders, but of course no one wants to do that.
