Alright, I reinstalled and set it as stand alone server, but now I have a new problem! an error pops up every time I start NT
something along the lines of...
"At least one or more devices or services failed during start-up. Check event viewer to see the failed services"
so I checked the event viewer and it says my network card driver has failed. But everything works just fine. I can ping the router, browse the web, I can net send to it from another computer and it will successfully recieve the message, so why does it say it doesn't work? That message was never there when it was a pdc!
Torvalds was contemptuous of Microsoft's claims and has asked Redmond to name the patent infringements so that their veracity can be challenged and workarounds found.
"Naming them would either make it clear that Linux is not infringing at all (which is quite possible, especially if the patents are bad), or would make it possible to avoid infringing by coding around whatever silly thing they claim,"
"So the whole 'We have a list and we're not telling you' should tell you something. Don't you think that if Microsoft actually had some really foolproof patent, they'd just tell us and go, 'nyaah, nyaah, nyaah!'?"
