    This will be a general question. How does the performance in the RTM
    compare with the performance of RC2 (build 5744)? Performance was
    generally good and in some cases faster in RC2 than XP, but some other
    areas were slower, especially Windows Media Player 11 where mfpmp.exe
    ate a lot of CPU resources (up to 10%) and DWM also ate a lot of CPU
    resources when WMP11 was running for some reason. (up to 15%) Total
    CPU usage averaged between 20% and 30% with no visualizations running
    when WMP was playing music. Thanks.

    Specs (Windows Experience Index - 4.0 on RC2):
    AMD Sempron 64 (socket 754) 2800+ 256KB L2 cache OC'd @ 2GHz; stock is
    1.6GHz (4.0 WEI)
    1.5GB PC-2700 RAM (4.3 WEI)
    Ati Radeon X1600 Pro AGP 8x 256MB GDDR2 video card (4.4 for graphics and
    4.8 for gaming graphics)
    WD 120GB 7200RPM 8MB cache IDE HD (2 60GB partitions - one holds Vista
    RC2) (5.0 WEI)
    WD 80GB 7200RPM 2MB cache IDE HD (XP)

    For me it has been better than RC1 or RC2. The file mfpmp runs at about
    2%, which is all I am seeing when I run WMP.

    I am using:
    1.67 Core Duo
    1 Gig ram
    ATI X1400
    Inspiron E1500
