Windows "If you've been paying attention to the various industry news outlets you've no doubt come across the story about the Microsoft engineer advocating Windows Server 2008 as a 'workstation' OS. According to him, if you make the right tweaks - installing the Desktop Experience feature, adding a few missing utilities, tuning the scheduler - you can turn Server 2008 into a fairly convincing Vista knock-off, one that's faster and more scalable than the original. Curious, we decided to see for ourselves just how well Server 2008 stacks-up to Vista with SP1." In addition, ExtremeTech has an article on Vista SP1 performance.

How is that really hard? I doubt anyone on OS News doesn't know how to disable a service.

It ain't hard but people winging about it as part of Vista on this site, we'll it leaves in doubt their capabilities to admin an OS.

DRM, hasn't effected me in any of my audio work, games, Vid playback through component or anything else I can think of that I use my system for. Then again, I don't use MS built in apps for content creation or multimedia playback.
