Comcast Launches Superfast Internet To Fight FiOS

drwtsn32 Not very useful (209 comments)

I have 100Mbps service with Charter and find that many (most?) sites cannot or do not deliver content at that speed. Some clearly do (like Steam), so I know I am getting 100Mbps service, but for the most part this speed doesn't "feel" much faster than the 40Mbps I had before.

What happened to all of that?

Not having to ensure compatibility with really old operating systems enables the developers to spend more time adding features and capabilities, for one.

M$ wouldn't let me enable AERO That's not because of your RAM. It's because of your video card and driver. Try educating yourself on the requirements to run Aero.
