i did the hello world greeter.ts thing and compiling it is very surprisingly slow (especially after having used go for a while, but that admittedly was on a different machine, so i can't really compare.)

is node just slow on ubuntu?

is there anything one can do to speed things up?

i tried using "tsc -w greeter.ts" and it seems to notice the file change pretty quickly. BUT it doesn't put a message out when it is done compiling, so that's annoyingly unhelpful in trying to see if it is any faster. (and it doesn't seem that useful-user-friendly since i would have to kill it every time i make a new file?)
