Network Computing details improvements to the TCP stack and networking support in Microsoft Vista and Longhorn, including receive-side-window autotuning and the Compound TCP algorithm, which will increase network performance. Tests showed a Windows Vista computer had twice the throughput downloading a file from a Windows 2003 server, compared with the same download to a Windows XP computer. Longhorn will provide an additional boost. Could Windows networking finally be up to snuff?

stickin' those artificial stimulants in your arm.
