Am I the only one who thinks Atom is slow?

Atom takes too much time to start up and hangs frequently during use. I know my pc isn't very powerful but sublime and even visual studio run smoothly on it. Does anyone have speed issues with Atom?

Depends majorly on your machine and your OS, Atom lags quite a lot on windows so Sublime would be a better option for windows. But I use Atom and its cool plus you can add up like unlimited plugins for almost any new technology

I dunno if you're talking macs. If you are, macs are powerful laptops so it still confirms my theory that Atom is slow on the one hand. On the other, it may be that it's more optimised for MacOS than Windows.
