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.

"You mean with all that processing power Vista can't play an MP3 and network at full speed at the same time? C'mon, that's shoddy design! My ten year old Mac can do that."

Huh? What exactly are you "calling BS" on?
You say it's "shoddy design", well that's what Russivich is saying (not "shoddy", but more like "sloppy", in that Gigabit networks weren't properly considered). You're essentially agreeing with Russinovich's assessment. I don't know what your "calling BS" on.

Besides that, did your 10-year old Mac have Gigabit networking? Somehow I doubt that.
