this could be a stupid question but is there any copy of the documentation for C# anywhere in a form similar to the sun javadocs?, personally i find the somewhat bloated and slow msdn pages to be the most annoying thing about using c#

Visual Studio came with offline MSDN library DVDs last time I checked, though that might not be true for the Express Edition. You might try Ebay for copies of the MSDN library.

I'm sure there is a (legal) downloadable version of msdn, if I find the url I will post it here.

There is also monodocs. It's for Mono, but it has most of the core libraries (System.*) in it and is pretty zippy.

There is also a local version, but I don't know if it runs on Microsoft's CLR.

I believe the slowness is due to the TOC tree that is reloaded for every new article. Long ago the TOC and article were in different frames, which had minor layout issues but was a lot faster. You can try posting here regarding perf.
