Isn't the fact that Microsoft, starting with Vista, moved the video graphics adapter from kernel-mode to user-mode for more stability the biggest performance drain?

It was an initial drain because the drivers had to be largely rewritten for WDDM. It's fine now, and 7 performs at least as well as XP overall (not even taking into account the stuff you get from having a good x64 OS). Hell, the drivers were mostly there by the time Vista hit retail.
