Ok manip, but now, tell us how you really feel.
I thought that Zeroconf (the spec) was implemented by Apple with the name of Rendezvous and by Microsoft with the name uPnP. (Bonjour being the Rendezvous port to Windows by Apple)
You can already see networked printers etc with uPnP, what exactly is new with Bonjour?

If they buy Suse, it stays in the EU.
If by "EU" you mean "Ohio", then yes, you are correct
(note: Suse is owned by Novell)

For Avalon, yes. For Indigo, read this interview with Don Box where the issue is clearly discussed

Whoa, stop here. Who said 2007?
Tyler Brown wrote:In other words, if you want to get to the point, when should we anticipate Beta 1 of Avalon and Indigo? Beta 2? RTM?
Avalon and Indigo are developed in the Windows division (that's why Visual Studio and WinFX releases are not simultaneous) so they'll be synchronized with Windows releases.
The only technology not in step with Windows is now WinFS, that should go beta with the Longhorn release (I hope ) and released shortly thereafter.
Tyler Brown wrote:I dont think that Indigo was planned to be backported right from the get-go. As far as I know it was just recently announced that it, along with Avalon, would be backported.
No, Indigo was also meant to be a cross platform communication technology, so when they announced it around PDC03, it was immediately stated that it was a Longhorn/XP/2003 release.
