I do see how Microsoft dropped the ball. I do not agree with them removing older DirectX compatibility from Vista or the way that they are changing the networking, I do understand why they are doing it.
Well with the networking, they are just slowly removing support for IPv4 making room instead for IPv6 networking.
While of course leaving normal IPv4 compatability in place since much of the network still uses IPv4, MS is going to phase IPv4 to basic network connectivity as IPv6 takes over, they to me, have just done it too soon. IPv4 addresses are going to sooner or later run out, and I also am probably going to go nuts when I have to start setting static IPv6 addresses too.. :P

I could blame for MS for moving too quickly on implementing IPv6 if it weren't for the fact that IPv6 was supposed to be the IP standard some years ago.

That's probally because Octal (base 8 maths) has been obstelete in computing since the mid-1980's!! ;D

Put it this way.... they don't even bother to teach it at colleges and universities these days.

The Klingons have many ways to fry a cat. I prefer to use an L7 Fast Battlecruiser!!
