What is your basis for comparison? Did it used to run faster for you
before the upgrade? With GNOME 1? 

Your mail really provides very little information to work to work out
exactly what problems you are seeing and whether the problem is with
your setup or somewhere else. So, less exclamation marks and more
details would be appreciated, I'm sure.

A quick test with a random selection of applications on my machine
(which is slower than yours) had most of them popping up within a second
or two. So where do you see the slowness? Are they long pauses of
inactivity, or ...?
