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.

Even if you're playing an unprotected video in WMP, the video and WMP are still actively protected from being recorded or modified.

I don't use WMP and my CPU utilization while playing media content is the same as on W2K. Of course, there are absolutely no problems recording and modifying video.

Vista checks regularly that it is not being tampered with, Patch Guard protects the kernal.

RTFM, PatchGuard has nothing to do with DRM.

There is an overall increase in background CPU usage solely for the DRM protections that go into Vista, protected content or not.

Prove it with facts.
