NYT Says M$ is working on new internet "softwa

Sfing_ter writes "The Story in the link... is about "PC's fighting back" but the person who is the subject of the first page — (fta) "oversees the Windows division's adoption of new Internet connectivity software called IPv6". For something that has been around 10yrs — not including the RFC creation stage — how is this "NEW"? It is this kind of "slipping-in" of incorrect information that the public reads that makes the IT job more difficult. Individuals get the subliminal idea that this was "created" by M$ — and the dangerous ones want to know when they can download this fantastic new software... or sigh, why it won't work on THEIR computer."
