well, it wouldn't be all that far off to say that they were one of the
first implementors of the internet. and i think one of their machines
was the first router (a bbn butterfly or something like that).
it's an interesting way to gauge technical clueness. dec, apple, ibm,
mit, and hp all have /8 addresses. microsoft has several /24 addresses.
in fact, up until around 1990 or so, ms email was delivered via uucp.
just think, if they'd kept their heads in the sand long enough we'd
probably be getting mail from kenn.humborg at domain microsoft.com - mail admin
kevin, making sure his will is current...
