Actually, hate to say this, even though I'm normally a Vista basher...
Aero can improve system performance in some cases.

The reason is simple - Windows can offload all that graphic performance such as rendering those nice useless 3D effects to the GPU... leaving the CPU to do its' tasks. Disabling Aero could place the loads back to the CPU.

But that's only in a few cases I've heard of.

My computer DID run slower while it was in classic mode. But not much though.
