Just wanted to share this article on how to increase your speed of Windows 7 guests on Xen.
Not sure if this works on other Windows guest like Windows 2008 server etc.
But if you do not need USB connectivity it is sure worth a try :

Interesting indeed.... will have a test to see what this will do on our Xen environments.

Thanks for sharing!

It's interesting to see the suggestion is to disable the USB Root HUB at Windows level instead of disabling USB support within the VM's/domU configuration.
