By default, it's built with the Debug configuration. Does it have something to do with that?

Only make Visual Studio to build Release configuration. Debugs builds are really slow.

Yeah, the difference is huge. Maybe, it would be better to make the Release option default?

Release is next to useless for development work as you can't use the debugger without being fluent in assembly. Remember, we're setting up a development environment, not a tool for users to test out the same new features offered by nightlies or an AppVeyor artefact.
