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."

"The Linux guys quite rightly rejected TOE because there was a lot of pain with zero benefit to anyone."

There's no evidence that TOE is the cause of this problem.

I never said it was (it was a specific reply) - but something in the network stack is definitely wrong because this didn't happen in XP.
