Internet & Networking It's panic time again, boys and girls, according to a ZDNet article. "Microsoft's launch of Windows Vista could slow down or stall traffic on the Net, said Paul Mockapetris, who is widely credited with inventing the Internet's Domain Name System. Mockapetris believes Vista's introduction will cause a surge in DNS traffic because the operating system supports two versions of the Internet Protocol, a technology standard used to send information over computer networks." Ars, however, says there's no need to stockpile batteries and dehydrated food. "Relax, the Internet isn't going anywhere. As it has so many times in the past, it will adapt to the new demands being placed on it. And it will remain true, as they used to say, that it's always September somewhere on the Net."

Hey buddy, newsflash-- You have no idea what you're talking about.

This is about the INTERNET, and any sysadmin worth his salt would filter/limit what traffic goes from his local network to the public one.
