Also mostly customers would like to have the microsoft server as "virtual web hostings" and therefore (unfortunately) an ip address per customer is needed. To put the acceptance of http1.1 in the net is a good idea, but first you need to tell the global players to implement it correctly with all possibilities ( i am talking about microsoft ). I know that apache exists for windows nt and some good ftp servers; but most of the time customers would like to have a "Frontpage Web" like click-and-fun desktops and webs. It's the customer which is driven by microsoft. I dislike Windows NT and like Linux of its stability and flexability (just to tell) Jan > -- > don't send mail to this account!
