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."

Wow that 300mhz P2 must have a hell of a system bus. I have a 3.8ghz P4 at work that couldn't get above 40 megabytes per second in throughput.
As a test when building a Mythbox from a 450MHz P3 (with an Atheros wifi card), I turned on VLC and streamed live TV from it to VLC running on a Mac (wired directly to the wifi router).

Gapless and in sync.
