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."

A recent update I installed tonight - performance has improved but I think that zlynx has a good point. I wonder how much of the issues are related to poor setup than anything to do with solely a Microsoft issue.

For me, my computer had Windows Vista by default with all the latest drivers included with the restoration cd. I haven't seen any performance issues, then again, I have a very souped up machine with 2gigs of RAM.
