scenario :
	
	You change the tcp / ip stack standard
	three years later MS. discloses that it owns a 
	patent that effects that change.
	CHARGES ABSURB AMOUNT to use standard apache goes
	defunct becouse it can't afford to pay.
	A iis virus hits ,
How long will the net be down if there are no other servers to download
the patch from ?
Will MS have enough modems to patch all backbone servers in a day / week
/ month
