    Just wondering! What will happen if two comps have the same name? Unlike domain names, here there is no certifying authority that will ensure uniqueness.

    Secondly, shall we consider this as a feature or a problem :roll: this will identify each and every machine on the net uniquely and could pose a threat to privacy.

    The world is slowly becoming a smaller place and privacy is slowly going out of the window.

    First we have mobile phones in every pocket so that u can be located anywhere and then this Domain Name thing for computers!
