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.

Not a horrible bug, should be easily fixed, but still points to shortsightedness and poor testing. MS optimized multimedia playback throttling for 100Mbs networks, but didn't bother to test with Gigabit networks, which are the networks that are having the problem.
