Merry Christmas! Vista's SP1 delivers no performance improvement, despite many promisses, and delivery delays. The PC World article concludes:

The bottom line: It's Vista's architecture and feature set -- Barth cited Volume Shadow Copy, Vista's snapshot service, as an example -- not a lack of fine-tuning or bug fixes that makes it perform poorly on PCs that run Windows XP blazingly fast.

They should try GNU/Linux, which makes XP look slow.

This failure surely dooms Vista's already hurting sales for Christmas and should wrap up it's status as 7% also ran that will soon be replaced.
