The Internet II...

Sun Feb 26, 2006 5:05 am

What features would you like to see in "The Internet" version two?

I'd like to see ultra fast downloads... Like, Download a DVD in a matter of seconds or minutes...

What about you?

Why would you need a second internet for that?

Why can't you just use the first one and buy more bandwidth? The only things I think the current internet is missing are enough IP's (already being addressed) and true multicast capability.

Theres already an 'Internet2' in existance, and it features very high speed transfer rates.

Basically, its what the Internet was supposed to be, a high speed research network, and you can only get on it if you are an academic institution or similiar (you wont be dialing up to it any time soon).

What would I like to see? Ultra fast interconnects enabling me to sit down at any computer in the world, run a little client off a USB stick (like Remote Desktop), and have full access to my home PC just as if I was sitting there infront of it.

I mean full access, with no difference between physically sitting at the console and being 5000km away sitting infront of a dumb terminal. Commandline is there, but doing it for the GUI is far away at the moment.

Ever heard of terminal services? AKA "Remote Desktop Connection"? It comes free with Windows 2000 and Windows XP.

(Don't ask me about XP home, I only know about Pro)

Yes, but video overlays, opengl and directx overlay heavy applications (some media players, almost all modern games) cannot be played over Remote Desktop. Its good for basic uses, eg word, excel etc, but for a lot of what I want to do its useless.

Internet II is hype and office politics. The actual improvements have already been mostly incorporated in the infrastructure (IPv6), and the speed is determined by advances in router and other physical connection technologies, not by how you call it.

Ahh, I see.

Still, if I were a heavy computer gamer on the go I would probably want a more powerful notebook rather than a faster internet. That way I wouldn't have to worry about finding some internet connection with fast speeds and a good screen every time I wanted to play. Notebook gaming seems a lot more plausable than internet terminal gaming. At least, that's my opinion.

With the internet 2 you wouldnt have to worry about "Finding" fast connections or locating strong signals...

It would just be "there" similar to modern radio signals...
