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.

On a modern rig, XP boots in under 20 seconds, while a new linux can take upwards of a minute to a minute and a half, even though the throughput on linux is much higher then xp.

Booting Ubuntu 6.10 takes 39 seconds on my Pentium III laptop.
