[Small Question] Why are WM boot times slower in Mt. Rainier than in Alpine Lakes or older?

For the Alpine Lakes build 3029, the boot up time for me is around two seconds, while it’s 15 seconds for the latest build of Mt. Rainier (4017).

I was wondering what could be contributing to the longer boot times, and as a side question, how do I re-enable the secondary console window?

There are two reasons for this:

  1. QT is a much larger and more complicated framework, and it unavoidably takes longer to initialize.
  2. Mt Rainier scans your macro and blueprint folders on startup to be able to place them into the menus and quick-add dialogs. This takes a bit of time.

Finally, you can turn on the console window by launching with --log as a program argument
