Hum I got 3 GB of ram, a 2.4 GHz Core2Duo, Nvidia 8600 GT and Windows Vista
Ultimate (32 bits)
and a 7200 rpm drive.
When I say it's slow I am comparing to Windows XP SP3, the same
cross-compilation takes twice
much time on Vista ...

SSD are you serious!!!! 
Whay should I spend so much money while the problem is caused by the OS.
laptop performance is not the reason
