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:

Put another way, users of Windows Vista provide PNRP domain name resolution services for other Windows Vista users.
