This is why the only Windows based OS I use is 64bit XP all of my other OS are 5 Linux Distro's and 1 FreeBSD but
What? Since when did vista EVER "cap" download speeds? And on a newer pc 2gb isnt really a fair amount, its pretty much the minimum youll get on something in a store these days unless you get the ultra budget clearance models. And vista is also FAR FAR FAR better than the travesty that was windows ME.

well it does slow down your internet I know because I had Vista and my Average download speed was only 700kbs but on any other windows I average about 1.2Mbs on Linux I average 7 mbs and on a very good day I will get up to 10mbs . Vista does give you slower download speeds. Windows Vista default limit is based on which edition of Vista users are using. For example, Home Basic has maximum limit of 2, and Vista Ultimate is 25 per second. Normal Windows Vista users should not face any problem or slow network connection with the half-open connections limit. However, heavy P2P (peer-to-peer) applications users such as uTorrent, BitTorrent, BitComet, Azureus, ABC, eMule (eDonkey network), etc, or P2PTV such as TVants, PPLive, PPStream, Sopcast, etc may face some error or slow download and upload speed due to this limit.its one of Vista's security Ideas so it supposedly slows down Virus's or something there are bat files out the that will open up a couple more but even then your not getting the full amout that your ISP gives you unless of course you do have telus or someplace like that
