certainly wouldn't recommend them when there are really good products

Frankly, I wonder why Microsoft chose to include the pretty limited TCP/IP
tools with their systems that they did. Perhaps to encourage third party
developers or perhaps to steer clear of the Antitrust Division of the U.S.
Dept of Justice.
