This may not mean much, since configurations can vary tremendously.

I have 24/25 plugins running. I can send you the list if you wish, but  
I do run many of the ones you have.

I'm using 2.6, release version, and I have not tried any of the 2.6.1  

I do not have any slowdowns, Google XML Sitemaps handles my blog in  
2.05 seconds, based on current testing.

Oh yes, other than its simple contact manager, I fail to see a  
justification for running two spam filters. Either take Akismet or WP- 
SpamFree. Running both is an absolute waste, like running two virus  
detection utilities on a PC.
