It takes my laptop some time to open a tab or switch between tabs. I think it's all the DevExpress overheads. Unfortunately, this breaks up the narrative a bit so I use RW less in-session as I would like.

Is there a way to change the GUI to use a low-cpu theme instead of the devExpress windows? At least provide an option to have a bear bones interface circa Windows 2000 or something.

On the other hand, if you can find a way of speeding up the tabs without downgrading the gui of course that would also be okay!

+1 for this. Switching tabs should be instant!

I already thought about upgrading to a new laptop, but I fear the result would be disappointing as this takes a significant amount of time even on my high-end gaming desktop.

As far as I know RW is a 32bit application, I think moving it to a 64Bit application may have some benefit here as well.

I get a lot of random crashes, which the only thing I can attribute it to, is memory management.

so better memory management, faster application, or that's what the boffins at work tell me anyway.

RW is a bit sluggish and would sometime crash on my Lenovo x230. On my Dell XPS it runs great. The big difference is my XPS has flash memory. RW performs much better on a flash drive.

It doesn't run great on my XPS 12, despite it having an SDD. Switching tabs is too slow during a gaming session (tolerable during preparation).
