    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 :)

    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.
