Try to improve your performance of Lightroom. Please!

The performance of Lightroom 4.1 is TERRIBLE. It is so terrible (even with my high end computer) that it doesn't work properly. It's is slow, especially when I use the brush tool. I have to wait a few seconds before I see what I'm doing.
I recently bought all the RAM my computer could handle.

To give you an example how 'quick' it works now. If I export a html web to my desktop made from 42 RAW files: it takes 8 minutes 46 seconds.

Currently I have good reasons to look for another company than Adobe to provide me with a friendly workflow. I thought one of the main advantages of LR was the workflow. Clearly that requirement has not been met due to the extreme lack of performance.

PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE Adobe spend time and money to improve your product. I hate to change software but I will because this is by far the slowest software I have encountered in years.
I can't imagine Adobe is pleased with that, I'm not, that's for sure.

Well, my post here is to pressure Adobe. I spoke to Adobe a few days ago and they know about this problem and were also willing to give me my money back.

So that figures.

I'm looking into other software like Capture One to see if I like that better. I hate changing software because I know my shortcuts and little tricks.
