stasike (1063564) writes "The upFront.eZine reports that according to the article on Tom's Hardware many popular 3D CAD and modelling programs run 10 to 50 times slower on Vista than on XP. An average modelling program, like 3ds max, runs "only" 10 times slower. UGS NX, on the other hand runs more than 50 times slower. This is a direct result of killing an OpenGL and implementing god-only-knows-what protective features into the Vista for our own good."
