Yesterday, Microsoft's program manager for sound in Windows Vista (what a great title!), Steve Ball, posted a blog entry explaining why audio playback sometimes gets glitchy in Windows.
There's an air of post-facto justification about the posting--itbasically reminds us that a PC is doing a lot more thingssimultaneously than, say, a $20 CD player--but toward the end of thepost, he notes that it's common for certain older device drivers tolock out the CPU for 10 milliseconds to 50ms, causing an obviousproblem.
Of course, he didn't tell anyone just what those devices those drivers might belong to. He did promise a follow up post which will address the corrective action Microsoft will be taking.
