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.

But what doesn't make sense is why this wasn't a problem on XP.


Perhaps because XP was (and is) a rather stable product, whereas Vista is not. I don't understand why some people are amazed by the issues with Vista. It's common knowledge that any Windows should be still considered beta, no matter what Microsoft says, until at least SP1. People went and installed Vista in spite of this, yet now they complain of this and that. Why do that? What was so wrong with XP that they couldn't wait for Vista SP1? I don't know. Whatever. I guess someone's gotta do beta-testing for Vista and be the guinea-pig. So thanks to all current Vista users for a better SP1.
