Aside from major changes to the OS, Microsoft has localised screen savers to include local landscape scenes, flags and traditional designs to encourage users to adopt XP Starter Edition.

Microsoft may have misjudged the market, however – XP Starter Edition apparently features lower resolution graphics, crippled networking and bizarrely, only allows users to run three programs simultaneously.

This doesn't look like what you are looking for, if you are a hardcore gamer.

I don't believe this is for Europe or the USA and is not available for those areas if at all.

It will not accomplish what the standard or pro versions of XP does.

There is a program called nLite that strips away unneeded components before installing XP. It will decrease the amount of space it takes up on your hard drive - but any speed increases aren't noticeable.
My browser caused a flood of traffic, sio my IP address was banned. Hope to fix it soon. Will get back to posting as soon as Im able.

You can uninstall unused Windows components in add/remove programs but that will eliminate your ability to access them if you uninstall them of course.

If you have a modern computer with current technology and enough space on the hdd the difference in speed will be negligible if noticeable at all.
