Submission + - Windows 7 Office slowdown - here's why (pcpro.co.uk)

Barence writes: "A few days ago this blogger ran benchmark tests on the Windows 7 Release Candidate and compared the results to Vista, only to find that an Office test was running an incredible 70% slower in the new OS. No other benchmarks showed the same slowdown, so something about the way Windows 7 handles Microsoft's own Office suite was causing this discrepancy. Now he has the answer, and it's all to do with the Windows Display Driver Model 1.1. And ironically, fixing the problem involves going back to Vista drivers."
