I'm not even going to get on how ridiculous of a comparison method that is.

People need to get over it, XP has met its successor.

Yes, we know!

I have a scratched record that keeps playing the same tune. It saves me money on CDs.

Seven runs better and is more compatible with the stuff I have installed on it.
XP is a bit faster, but that is just because of my old CPU, so when I upgrade to the latest CPU, hopefully in the near future, I'll dig a deep grave and give XP its final rest.

I do not think you caught the point of that statement...Let me elaborate since it is necessary. The point is that it is really sad that in defence of XP's speed versus Vista and 7, a contest of web browser speeds was the best they could do...that deserves a

i dunno about everybody else, but i rarely have to resize my services.msc window really fast.

i'm more concerned with pixels moving fast whilst i'm playing games. windows 7 = PASS

i also like full-screen HD video playback. windows 7 = PASS

youtube vid above = FAIL

Just saw this thread & for me its like you cant compare a father to a son (XP to 7) they are like the same you cant even compare your 2001 PC running XP to a 2009 PC running 7 coz they are the same,, ofcourse if you run XP on a 2009 PC itll run faster than a 2009 PC wit 7..Hardware wise XP is made & bring front to the world wit the technology exist in year 2001 & now it evolves so much that our hardware today is far more advance now & Windows 7 is built in todays technology & experience through the years of XP just look at the system requirements for each of them its unfair if you run XP on a let say 2GHz CPU & its minimum requirements of what 233MHz & Run the same speed on Windows 7 wit a minimum requirements of 1GHz ofcourse youll say that XP is far more still greater than 7,, Windows 7 is like a new born baby u need to feed em guide em & take care of em but lets wait a year or 2 XP will pass its crown to 7 for sure if you want the same experience wit your XP the first thing you need to do is look under the hood so i vote 7 becoz of where we at now...

its just me so now ive got a problem need to upgrade my mobo/mem/HD lol

Well that is easy to explain. services.msc is done in GDI which is mostly not hardware accelerated. Another change to GDI was the global lock was removed with smaller locks, which requires a little more overhead. However removing the global lock allows for parallel GDI renderings now. Also with WDDM 1.1 drivers DWM is only stored in video memory now, which is another overhead for GDI because the CPU has to go further to get the information it needs. But this reduces memory usage.

There is a bright side to all of this. WPF applications are fully hardware accelerated by the graphics card. And all applications should be written using WPF. Sadly developers are SLOW.
