... and the reason I like it is that well documented examples of implementing a tcp/ip stack has always been near nonexistant (have you looked at the linux code for this?). It's one of the core things needed to build a new operating system these days, but finding hard information on doing it has always boiled down to pouring over page after page of specifications and theory, with no good examples of application.

All I can say is it's about time.
