It's probably just some random Microsoft employee illegally abusing his office computer to dig some LTC Smiley

Also remember that MS Research has some interest in cryptocurrencies.

Any significantly advanced cryptocurrency is indistinguishable from Ponzi Tulips.

Spinning shiny discs at high speeds to detected physical pits by a flashlight? How delightfully archaic.

My guess is Windows "9" likely will have no disk (but that won't stop the bloatware).

My guess: There wont be a Windows 9
After Windows 8 they have to restart the whole damn thing to make up for the shame for removing everything vital from an operation system and adding useless bullshit...

I reading somewhere at MS actually has put together staff and have already started on Windows 9 & Windows 10..

The article was saying MS is working with Intel on Windows 9 with the goal of making it the first 128bit OS... and Windows 10 being the first 256bit OS...  I'll see if I can dig up that article again.

I am willing to bet it was written by an idiot.

Microsoft is of course working on versions further than 9 and 10 but wouldnt be as stupid as to announce such stuff...

Has anyone run the same analysis on Bitcoin nodes?  See what sort of places connected IPs resolve to?

It's a command line utility called "netstat". It shows the various connections you have with their port numbers. -n is probably the switch he used.
