Windows Vista and Linux-based ISP don't match

Because of a "bug" that prevents Windows Vista users from playing nice with a Linux-based ISP, some users (the ones which use Vista) in the Swedish's region of Lund cannot access the Internet...at all.

Considering that the ISP is blaming Microsoft for the flaw and refusing to change the configuration of its hardware in order to cope, who knows how long these citizens will be without their daily dose of the web.

Ironically, Sweden also holds the fastest home-based internet connection in the world, which is owned by a 75-years old lady.

This is what I call interoperability :-)
