Is it just for me or the Dashboard area is painfully slow?
I run it on Firefox 3 at a Linux box and I can literally click on "Post", go to the bathroom, grab a glass of water in the kitchen and come back in time to see the last stage of loading (sometimes not a full glass, but still).
I have no past "Dashboard 2.7" experience as I started using WordPress less than a week ago but I had a sneak peek at my girlfriend's and I don't remember been this slow. Also, she told me that she indeed noticed a slow down.
The frontend is actually ok with a normal loading. It is just the backstage area that is very slow.
