Opening a large solution takes time to load. Once its loaded it takes a bit before XS is usable.

This is on an Android solution w/ 50 projects. We also have an iOS solution that is roughly the exact same size both number of project and lines of code. It seems like our Android solution takes longer to be fully loaded than our iOS solution does.

Hi Stephen,

Could you please provide your solution and xamarin builds info via XS->About XS->Show Details? So that we can reproduce this issue at our end. 

Also provide XS logs via XS->Help->open log directory->ide logs

I think this falls into the general pit of Performance and Profiling. Giving it to Marius for visibility, but I think we can just close it as "Opening large solutions is slow. We know. We should keep profiling and fixing."

There is ongoing work on improving load performance of the solution.
