As someone who uses for managing all my environments, I've noticed since v4.4 how much slower the entire process takes, especially since I need the and -forge channels.

It's nice to see Anaconda address the issue, offer tips for improvement, provide an explanation why there are speed issues, list next steps for improvement, and deal with the open source community


The current situation, unfortunately, is that it's on the end user to implement some fixes to speed up the process. But with work on optimizing the SAT solver, gracefully reprioritizing old packages over time, and implementing a more efficient .conda package structure, I'm optimistic things will get better in the next few versions
