On my Win10 64, Core I5 / 8 GB RAM, Sourcetree is very very slow:

- Starting application: 48 sec

- In log/history view: clicking on any commit to see e.g. which files have been altered: 8-10 sec

- Clicking Tools-->Options: 17 sec. Closing Options dialog: 15 sec

- Opening new repo: 42 sec

- Checkout branch: 30 sec (In Netbeans <4 sec, command line <2 sec)
