    | Q: How much will the agreement result in the increased interoperability
    | between Windows and Linux/Unix?
    |
    | tridge: For the sections of the protocols we already implement, Samba already
    | has quite good interoperability. Where it will make more of a
    | difference is allowing us to expand into new areas where we
    | previously lacked features that Windows servers have. For example in
    | the area of Active Directory replication, and remote indexing.

    Dual_EC_DRBG Added to Windows Vista

    | Microsoft has added the random-number generator Dual_EC-DRBG to Windows
    | Vista, as part of SP1. Yes, this is the same RNG that could have an NSA
    | backdoor. *
    |
    | It's not enabled by default, and my advice is to never enable it. Ever.

    | "It is no exaggeration to say that the national security is
    | also implicated by the efforts of hackers to break into
    | computing networks. Computers, including many running Windows

    | Department of Defense and by the armed forces of the United
