Food For Thought – Does your product / application performance improve with every release?

This year I plan to write few small blog entries that can stir bit of thinking. I had written a similar post couple of years back. Windows 7 is easily the best OS from Microsoft so far. Personally, though its way better than Vista, there are still some areas of improvisation. My IE still hangs, Outlook still gets stuck. That beside Microsoft has done a great thing on improvising performance yet adding new features.

That’s ideally what should happen to your application / product. I have seen robust products which give in over a period of time. The reason stated normally is increased features. Not acceptable. Ideally your product should improve on performance with release while adding on features too. VS.NET 2010 has few issues on this front. So what happens with your product / application? I would love to hear your experiences.
