Submission + - Each Vista PC to get a domain

An anonymous reader writes: APC Magazine is reporting that every machine running Windows Vista will have access to its own domain name via IPv6.
From the article:
Unlike traditional DNS, where domain name servers are used essentially to store a list of domain names and their corresponding numeric IP addresses, PNRP does all the domain name resolution peer-to-peer. Put another way, users of Windows Vista provide PNRP domain name resolution services for other Windows Vista users.
