Quite so. The one included with the Linux TCP/IP packages provides
much more detail, and even finer details over what is seen, even
including what happens and of course why it does do that. And it is
constantly evolving.

By contrast the Windows one, is based on an earlier one to match their
early BSD derived TCP/IP stack and is only slowly catching up.

However further discussion is decidedly off topic for this group, and
I only decided to say even that much because CGF really didn't want

Should you wish to do so, I am open to off list discussions although I
must warn you there is a contract involved and fees as well.
