You are right. Especially this is suspicious when you know that Vista's kernel is doing things that should make the performance better:
- it does not waste unused process time slices (http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/magazine/cc162494.aspx)
- it has I/O prioritized, so you can run things like windows defender in low priority I/O so it doesn't monopolize
- I think it has also memory access priorities
- cancallabe I/O

But maybe these things are consumed by things like: windows defender, sidebar, visual fx, leaky gadgets.

Maybe not, because if you turn those off, you still have feel slow.

I think we should have detective Monk and Columbo on this case ;-)
