Utter horseshit, I refute every single one of those claims.  You'd have
to be a slow person, in the first place, for the animated eye candy to
not slow you down opening menus, and the like.

e.g. Open menu, instantly pick choice, versus open menu, wait for effect
to subside before you can even read menu, then pick choice.

The effects are *NOT* that quick that they add insubstantial delays.
