Re: reasons for new Winsock TCP/IP implementation, and Winsock with TNC with ETHRAX25

NOS is not completely free. Phil GPL-ed the AX.25 portion, but
still requires a modest royalty for the other parts if they are to be
used for commercial purposes. Also, NOS's implementation isn't really
what you want for kernel code (because of the assumptions it makes
about NOS's scheduler). You might do better to start with the
entirely-GPL-ed TCP/IP implementation from Linux.
