I can't believe you expected to see a noticeable difference at all.
"Was" is the keyword there, it's typically faster than XP by a small margin now. Very small, and only in games.
Thats exactly what I was set out to prove, that Vista was worse than XP, and it caught up to XP and some what beat it. While Windows 7 should be better, since its already caught up to Vista...it can go only up right?????
Then again we said the same thing with Vista, and the file Transfer over the network in windows 7 still isn't faster than Windows Xp.
