Windows Robert Love, a famous Linux kernel hacker, has written a blog entry with his thoughs on the recently posted Vista's network slowdown issue and the explanation given by Mark Russinovich: "Unlike DPCs, however, the Linux parallel does not consume nearly half of your CPU. There is no excusable reason why processing IP packets should so damagingly affect the system. Thus, this absolutely abysmal networking performance should be an issue in and of itself, but the Windows developers decided to focus on a secondary effect."

Windows users are mostly the type of it should work out of the box. Nothing wrong with that. Why should they browse sites such as OSNews and the like to get their answers? And don't forget to count the ugly Genuine Advantage debacle. Ugly situation indeed. And they dare to ask a lot of money.
