Abstract
This master’s dissertation investigates the evaluation of network performance of various Microsoft Windows operating systems (Windows XP, Windows Server 2003, Windows Vista, Windows Server 2008 and Windows 7 Beta) for both TCP and UDP protocols, as well as DNS, VoIP and gaming bandwidths. The parameters considered for each of these operating systems are throughput, round trip time and jitter. Results indicate that the newer Microsoft Windows client operating system (Windows Vista) does not bring convincing improvements in network performance compared with its predecessor (Windows XP). However, the newer Windows Server operating system (Windows Server 2008) has much higher network performance than its predecessor: Windows Server 2003.
