Make it faster

    I've been using WordPress since 1.5 when i fell in love with its simplicity and ease of use. But it seems that with every release it keeps on getting slower. Many posts in the forum suggest that slowness is due to factors outside of WordPress. A few posts even become rude on the subject. Considering - like others - to switch to another platform for this reason.

    Just want to echo that this is something that is important to me also -- please work on making WordPress faster. It's a noticeable drawback to an amazing program.

    Keep up the good work!

    Backend performance is quite acceptable with Gears enabled, and for he frontend I'd suggest to install a PHP op-code cache like for instance XCode.

    I totally agree the more speed the better.

    Definitely has to do with "speedup", and something I would like to see.

    I think that team members of WP need to consult with the people at http://www.mysqlperformanceblog.com/ . Once a fee has been determined from the consultation firm, WP can setup a donations page and tell us, "If you want to see these improvements, then you need to donate to the performance fund."

    If there's a way to speed up mySQL, these people will find it. They did it for vBulletin, and they could do it for WP.

    I, for one, would happily donate some money to see this happen.
