after a clean install of OS X Yosemite and a purchase of LR 6, is clear that the new release of LR is more slow and poor responsive vs the old LR5 version.
The start time of application is slow too.
Rumors tells me that LR6 is more speedy, but this is not real.
I hope that with new releases this problem will be solved.

Can you please clarify exactly what you're finding slower, apart from launch time?

I attach a picture to make the idea of what I mean.
A graphic bug occurs when opening panels radial and gradient filter: side bar moves to the outer edge. The animations of these movements are jerky and irregular.
Even when I zoom in and zoom out on a photo takes longer to rebuild the image.
Also opening the various modules for the first time takes more time than the version 5 (which however was not a champion in speed).

I totally agree with Tommaso - but I'm using Windows 8.1.
Just to list what feels slower (on my system):
- DNG convention including Smart preview creation
- image refresh while working with JPEG (really annoying as its slowing down my workflow)
- image export to JPEG

Besides I recognized several bugs, but I'll create another record for that.
