    Just checked out a copy of the newest build of vista, interesting thing was that I could add printers just like under Tiger, meaning it scanned the network and shower printers that were bonjour enabled... that lead me to think that M$ might finally have addopted zeroconf/Bonjour for real... but I cant verify it, anyone have more details?

    Trying to ping hosts with the .local hostname doesn't work, while it works in XP /w Bonjour installed, so maybe not.
