...and the assertion that if you can't run aero, the OS will run slow is simply not accurate.
I don't think they are saying it would run slower because you because you couldn't run Aero. I think they are saying that Home Basic is mean't for the lower end hardware (i.e. existing hardware that someone might want to try to upgrade) and that it would still run slow because even in it's 'slimmed down' state Basic can still be a resource hog.
