Desktop apps slowness is in not permanently connected to Linux.
As an excercise download a trial version of TextMaker for linux, a featurefull commercial wordprocessor. It was written from scratch with linux in mind and it shows. Is starts up almost instantly ,and this from coldstart!

I know a several examples of QT based commercial apps that leave even their KDE equivalents in the dust.
I've no idea how did they achieve that.
