Am I seeing IPv5, or am I hallucinating?

Yes, you're hallucinating.  The IP version number is 4 bits of the first
byte in the IP header.  The upper 4 bits are the length of the IP header
measured in double-words.  Since the IP header is frequently 20 bytes
long, that 4-bit length field is often '5'.  You're no doubt reading the
wrong field.

1. This clone I stupid, or am I right?


I admire your passion, Chris..

The only issues which have kept myself from looking seriously at Linux
would be:

* It's Unix and the learning curve to start getting productive strikes me
as probably very steep

* It doesn't support plug-and-play.  If your hardware doesn't have Linux
drivers, it don't play..

* Not nearly the amount of developers out there doing stuff for Linux as
there are for Wintel.  Can I get MS Office for Linux?  Can I get
Photoshop for Linux?  Can I get QuarkXpress for Linux? etc.. a big turn
off for me.
