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.

I'm seriously beginning to wonder what operating system I have installed on my Windows box. It claims to be Windows Vista Enterprise (32-bit).

I can't duplicate this horrific network slowdown.


That's to be expected. What bloggers claim and what happens in real life are often two completely unrelated things...
