funny how the article doesn't mention that this is extremely similar to apples rendezvous with itunes

Speaking of Rendezvous, we installed Mandrake Linux the other day for our web apps class. I was quite surprised when the setup assistant offered Zeroconf (Rendezvous) as a configuration option. Apple's technology is getting out there :)

Rendezvous is based off zeroconf, its not apples technology

Really? I thought Apple invented it then made it open source?

Rendezvous is Apple's rendition of Zeroconf, which is a rather old technology created by the IETF (Internet Engineering Task Force).

It is, however, the most mainstream rendition yet.

I stand corrected.
