With the now widely deployed win* platform tcp stach respecting tcp-reno things work according to well understood/accepted models. Mac OSX, linux and Vista seem to NOT respect tcp-reno, and may change the models somewhat... Will this cause more spikiness on individual links? will this change in behaviour on a wide scale (vista rollout to new computers or to existing platforms) causing folks capacity planning models to fail?
