It can sometimes take a while to load, there are a lot of plugins and
extensions to be loaded.

I usually run the gimp with options not to load all the extensions
(although this can sometimes have annoying side effects when extensions
expect everything to be preloaded).

You can do this too by using the following command line arguements:

gimp --no-data --no-splash --no-fonts

Give it a try and decide if it works well enough for you.  I find the
improvement in startup speed very helpful and worth any minor
inconveniences but your mileage may vary.
