It *still* isn't stolen. It's "used with the blessing of the
developers, in accordance with the license". Besides, the TCP/IP
stack in Windows hasn't been BSD based since the original Spider
stack was replaced. It's been Microsoft's own stack for well over
a decade now (and has apparently been rewritten again for Vista
anyway). Please stop spreading FUD. You may be discussing Microsoft,
but there's no need to stoop to using their marketing tactics when
doing so.
