This is a followup post to my original post regarding jdeveloper performance here:
Here are the updated numbers after getting our new i7 development PCs with SSD and windows 7 64bit. The new machine proved to be roughly twice as fast vs our old core 2 duo windows xp machines with JDev 11g. Not surprisingly, the lesson here is to max out your budget on cpu, ssd and ram. When I get time in the future, I will update these numbers running Ubuntu.
