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.

The big thing for audio guys on vista is WaveRT, which is a different way of doing sound. Unfortunately, it requires hardware support, so we aren't seeing much of it yet (I'm stuck using the ASIO4All shim driver for my stupid embedded sound card on my laptop). But once the cards start coming out, Vista will be giving OSX with coreaudio a run for its money.
