I wasn't asking for anything here but I thought since I was experiencing exactly the same issues as the other users here have I would post what DID cause my issues and how I have made it operate quicker. If you are a user that has your HTPC on all day and never switches off XBMC then yes, as I pointed out it runs ok after left for a while on startup. But if you have a multi-purpose HTPC that does other things other than just use XBMC then you do have slowdown issues on start IF you decide to use any pimp features such as widgets and animations which wasn't as much of a case on past versions.
Perhaps user input isn't as valued for this skin as others so I might just step back again and look at the other skins as suggested.
it should be obvious that the skin needs more performance when it has to show x different thumbs at once.
one of your suggestions was to deactive a setting which is labelled with "can increase cpu usage"... :/
and the comment about user input is just lame, i won´t get into that.
