Welcome to IWETHEY!

New ID number was a point.
TCP/IP stacks report an ID number which is different for each vendor - except Microsoft's TCP/IP reportes the same ID as Berkeley.
New Re: ID number was a point.
But that doesn't really prove anything. Microsoft might have decided, "OK, this is the standard ID, we'll report it".

Again, I wasn't able to find *any* report that was able to nail Microsoft to the wall with taking the BSD IP stack. None. Nada. Nill.

With the number of web pages out there, and with Google looking at them, and with lots of anti-Microsoft fanatics willing to spill their guts, and with the utter total failure of *any* of these pages to document Microsoft using BSD code, I need pretty damn good evidence that they used the Berkely IP.
French Zombies are zapping me with lasers!

                     Nope. - (admin)
             Well, it might be self fixing. - (Andrew Grygus)
         MS couldn't even write a decent TCP/IP stack. - (Brandioch) - (11)

                     Windows ME winsock.dll copyright says it's Microsoft's. - (a6l6e6x) - (6)
                         So why does it say BSD if it's Microsoft's? -NT - (tjsinclair) - (5)
                             API, not implementation - (kmself) - (4)
