Windows A curious network performance reduction noticed by many Windows Vista users of the 2CPU forum that became the talk of Slashdot last week has been identified as having been caused not by DRM, as Slashdot users expected, but by a curious prioritization 'feature' of Vista that's intentionally biased toward Media Player at the expense of network and system resources.

I guess that kind of makes sense. But what doesn't make sense is why this wasn't a problem on XP. Or why I haven't heard skipping on any kind of audio in years on any system running any OS.

The last time I had media performance problems was when I was running Gentoo with Gnome on a '98 beige G3 in 2004 and trying to listen to music while something was emerging.

Has anyone else here had problems like this when not running Vista?
