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.

All Vista's new audio stack is going to do for end users is maybe prevent the startup sound from stuttering.

And the per-stream volume adjustments. I curse the moments I forget to turn off Adium's and Colloquy's sounds while watching Dead Like Me. I almost get a heartattack when I'm watching an emotional scene and someone gets promoted to OP in #haiku ;) .
