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.

ok prioritising sound before network sounds ok.
but there is somthing wrong. when the network speed drops to 10 or 20% on a dualcore rigg you cant say that playng a mp3 would take that much resorces and even worse the file dosent even need to be played. if the multimedia player is paused the same slowdown appers. this is a bug and hoppfully ms will have a fix soon
