alright. you need to right click on the my computer icon and go to properties on the computer you want to CONNECT TO. then under the "remote" tab and check the box that says "I want to allow users to connect remotely to this computer" then look at the name that is under "full computer name" because you can also connect remotely using the computer's name. if you want to change this name, you can change it under the "computer name" tab and click the "change" button. then type in the name you want. also, sometimes you can't connect if you are on a different domain or workgroup. you can also change this the same way.
also, you will be logged off of the computer you want to CONNECT TO, but all your programs will stay running.
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!'?"
