Windows Months go, I reviewed Windows Vista, and concluded: "All in all, I am impressed by Windows Vista [...]. Windows Vista is better than XP, and definitely more than just an improved look as many say." After 5 months of usage, it is time to put that statement into perspective.

Sound card and video card drivers must be DRM infected, and all drivers must be "signed" by MS.

Wow, it's good my Vista copy doesn't know this, otherwise I wouldnt be able to run drivers for my Aureal card originally released for Win2K in year 2000.

Read "Unnecessary CPU Resource Consumption" section:

That's abstract mumbo-jumbo. In reality I didn't notice any additional CPU usage while playing media.
