Thanks for your response.
I am sorry that it was not more informative!
Yesterday, I installed Xubuntu and started using it instead of Unity, and
that improved the situation somewhat.
Yes, I can believe that!
There is still a problem, though, and Evolution and Firefox still take
unreasonably long time to launch. But it's clearly better with Xubuntu.
Still, I suspect the problem is probably kernel-related, i.e. bad support
for my hardware configuration. I still think that ordinary desktop
performance should never be a problem with a quad core CPU and 4 GB RAM.

I suggest doing a clean install on a temp root partition. If your home
directory tree is on the same partition as root, I'd suggest moving it
to a separate one, then you can share it between multiple installs,
which makes testing /much/ easier.
With 4GB of RAM, I'd also suggest running 64-bit. Yes, PAE will let
you access it all, but in a slightly constrained way.
