Installing Xcode and the CLI tools vastly reduced the speed of El Cap!

Everything was flying. Then enter Xcode. Now my machine is crawling. Is there any way to fix this? An uninstall? (And yes, I am a developer and I looked on the ADC forums, to no avail.).

It has to be something else... As far as I know Xcode doesn't install anything that stays resident in memory while not running the actual Xcode app. Have you looked through console for anything out of the ordinary?

I run xcode beta, and I don't see obvious performance drop on you. I constantly open xcode just for convenient.

I am not a developer, just a beginner though.

Check the console and Activity Monitor, you might have a stuck process. I don't see any performance issues when I installed Xcode 7.

Hmmm. That's odd. I'm backtracking to see if I installed something around the same time. Thanks!
