Built-in funcationality

I'm a little confused, Visual Studio has had a built-in option to set the number of concurrent builds since VS2005 (if I remember correctly). It can be found under Tools > Options > Projects and Solutions > Build and Run > maximum number of parallel project builds. By default, it is set to the number of cores present on the machine. What does VSSpeedster do that this option does not (other than turning the output verbosity to quiet)?

As i know, this option take place only when you compile C++ projects, not .NET. With this add-in I'm easily take performance boost up to 4 time on my very large .NET solution.

Ah, it would seem you are correct. Thanks for the info.
