Takes Atom 20+ seconds to start


Greetings. Is it normal for Atom to take a while to boot up? It takes me around 20 to 30 seconds to start typing once I click on the application. Sublime Text 2 is virtually instant. I’m not trying to make this an Atom vs X thread. I like Atom so far. But is there a reason why it’s taking so long to start up? I’ve got 8 gigs of RAM and an i5 processor so my specs are more than sufficient.
