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."

Thank you for that interesting 1998 quotation about 100 mb ethernet. Today 1000 mb ethernet transfers in XP on one of today's machines consumes nearly half of the CPU, but running MP3 audio concurrently does NOT produce glitches in the audio.
