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.

Umm, you sure there is nothing wrong with your setup? I've got a Athlon XP 1.43ghz connected to my TV for movie watching pleasures, and it can play back 640x480 videos just fine without any hiccups...Actually, it can even record video at 640x480 at 25fps and still have some spare CPU time left. Though, I haven't tried h264 encoded material on it, but everything else works just peachy.
