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.

Thats not my experience. I've seen itunes choke playing mp3s on my Macs (g4 ibook, 2.16ghz c2d mbp, and 2.4ghz c2d imac). Doesn't take all that much. Do something that creates a lot of disk I/O and itunes will skip.

Itunes runs at the same nice level as everything else. Only a select few processes on OS X run with a nice level other than 0.
