My desktop takes 8 seconds to start up and auto-login in Xubuntu 16.04.2 
LTS. This desktop was originally configured with Xubuntu 14.04 LTS back 
in 2015. It's an Intel Core i7 running at 4GHz with 16GB of RAM and a 
512GB SSD drive for the main drive. It has not been wiped or reinstalled 
since 2015, but upgraded from 14.04 LTS to 16.04.2 LTS. I have not 
noticed any slowdown over time. Love Xubuntu. Of course, this is not to 
say your experience is not valid - obviously something is going on with 
your specific configuration/hardware/software. I just haven't seen 
anything like that on my system and just wanted to mention it.

Good luck!
