Is your ISP ready for Vista?

Microsoft's oft-delayed, next generation operating platform - Vista is now expected to arrive in January 2007. Vista is reported to be extensive on collaboration and security fronts. To achieve many of the new feats that Vista promises to its users, the 1-Gig OS requires IPv6.

All applications made for the new platform are IPv4/IPv6 compliant and some are reportedly IPv6 only. Since Microsoft knows that not every ISP that the new Vista users connect to would be providing IPv6 services, it has come up with IPv6-over-IPv4 tunnel services that will tunnel the traffic from the end users to Microsoft tunnel servers hosted at one of its data centers.

To ensure scalability, natually, Microsoft has no other choice but to team up with local ISPs in each country to distribute the traffic load as close to the users as possible. This brings up the question of this post - who, if any, is the possible ISP who can contend for this slot. What is the requirement that if fulfilled, this tunnel service could be passed on as a co-located service to the local ISP.

I am starting a series of interaction with the local Microsoft office in Karachi to get an answer to this very question and would be sharing this with you here.

If Pakistanis do not want Mushrif, they can get rid of him themselves. The martyrdom in Pakistanis is as strong as that in the Iraqis, if not stronger. If the Iraqis can blow themselves up for the good of the country, so can the Pakistanis, and take Mushrif along with them.

If they didn't blow up Mushrif, it's not because Mushrif is so great at protecting himself, it's because Pakistanis still want him around. After all, one dictator is as bad as the next.

Thanks for the woderful information. I always visit your blog to get the various offers by VOIP companies. I usally call my family in India. While browsing, I found an interesting site, which lets you make unlimited long distance calls from USA/Canada to India and rest of the world, using your phone. This is not PC to phone call. You don’t have to download anything or need any internet connection. I really mean unlimited. The catch is each hour you can make 10 mins free call to India (or rest of the world) and then come back to get another PIN . I even called my friends in UK and France, voice quality was okay.
Visit http://www.muftphone.com to make free calls. I also filled a short sponsored survey, and I received PIN to make 2 hours of phone calls.
Friends, just wanted to share this information with you. I am not working or have any affiliation with the said waebsite.
