Is this the start of finger pointing?  Whos fault is it that the OpenAFS 
client doesn't run on Vista?  The OpenAFS client runs entirely under 
userland in Windows (not in the Kernel), so I assume its using "standard" 
APIs (Microsoft standard), so it sounds like it should be Microsofts 
fault.  Microsoft breaking their own APIs again?  But can that be proven in 
a court of law?  ;-)
