Current desktop client is just awful, half-baked piece of something which can be barely called software. If you have such difficulties implementing simple chat app, then you can open API for others to implement good client on their own.
Performance has been and continues to be a big focus area for Teams. One main area we have made improvements in is responsiveness for the most frequent user actions of switching between Chat, Channel, and Activity. We are also focused on reducing resource consumption and application load time. More improvements are on the way.

My VS2015 with Qt add-in uses less than 200MiB. Teams, when minimized, uses almost 400MiB. This is beyond ridiculous. Stop developing enterprise product with a bunch of JS kiddies.
We’re currently working on defining a compact mode experience. I will post more details when we have more to share.
