Vista Performance Report

Interesting report from a new Microsoft blogger.  I actually caught up with the article over on Bink.  What’s really interesting is that enabling the Aero interface did not show much overall impact on performance.  I would have to agree with this.  A couple of times if I had a runaway app slowing down my machine I…
