An interesting article written from the perspective of game development, where debugging is a pain when dealing with a slow debug build.

My complaint is the opposite, namely that optimized release builds are basically impossible to debug. If you need to debug them, you need to disable many of the optimizations.

I would also claim that many systems are designed with hardly any consideration of CPU, memory, and disk usage. The hardware crowd makes it faster and bigger, and then the software crowd pisses it all away.

I hardly ever play computer games, but my guess is that these guys are also wasting resources trying to outdo the competition when it comes to how real a game looks. Maybe they need to back off a little instead of whining about the performance of their debug builds.
