 "From what I am reading Win98 and NT5.0 will be getting rid of all that
  crap anyway. Seems that Microsoft has invented something called TCP/IP and
  another really revolutionary concept called DNS that eliminates the
  netbios crap too. All that arping from browsers is going to go away.
  I also hear rumors that they are on the verge of breakthrough discoveries
  called NFS, and LPD too. Given enough time and money, they might
  eventually invent Unix."
