I find that offensive. When I say "fast", I mean boot up in less than 10-20 seconds. Yes, faster than Windows 8 and Mac OS X. My point is that a desktop manager shouldn't require at least 2GB of RAM and a Core 2 just because of all it's fancy (pointless) effects, that get in the way when you work. I personally have all effects switched off.
Ithought you said faster than windows 8 ?
Anwyay, it's Fallback mode, it's not meant for actual use, and there's another way to make their non fallback mode work on older hardware so.

If P3's were so crap, Intel wouldn't have dumped P4's whole architecture and gone back to P3's for their intel core line of products
Technically that's not entirely correct. the P4's where faster than the P3's, but at the same time as the P4 their Israel department was developing the P3D mobile CPU based on the P3. the P4 while a good CPU struggled with scalability and heat issues. meanwhile the work the Israel team had done on the P3D lead to a CPU that had the potential to be very scalable and be more power efficient.
However the Core isn't base on the P3, it's based on the P3D, And even then it's a brand new CPU line just like the P4, it's got as much in common with the P3 and the P4 had, they just kept different bits of the old P3 design.
