i disagree.  in 1999, when .local was first referenced [and only in id form], short of perhaps the residential environment, always-on tcp/ip was commonplace - and i'm doubtful you'd even find microsoft references that early to it anyway, since microsoft was still catching up [this i heartily agree with, as they always are] :)
