I guess this may be a repost, but I'm using a very good pc(i7-4720HQ, 8gb ram, gtx 950m 4gb) and after I enter my password is taking like 1-2 min for dock and wingpanel to show up. Does anyone know why is this taking so much?

This is a bug with DBus - see the answer I posted here.

Essentially DBus is preventing everything from starting up, so until that's fixed you need to rename the file causing issues:

sudo mv /etc/xdg/autostart/at-spi-dbus-bus.desktop /etc/xdg/autostart/at-spi-dbus-bus.disabled
  • one more question, does it works if i'm in dual boot with win 8.1?

  • Yes, this shouldn't affect that.
