Discussion on the advantages of TCP vs UDP (and vice versa) has a history which is almost as long as the eternal Linux-vs-Windows debate. As I have long been a supporter of the point of view that both UDP and TCP have their own niches (see, for example, [NoBugs15]), here are my two cents on this subject.

Note for those who already know the basics of IP and TCP: please skip to the 'Closing the Gap: Improving TCP Interactivity' section, as you still may be able to find a thing or two of interest.

It's a primer, or a refresher, or a skip. We have all kinds here. Enjoy, or don't.

    Not really, the only thing that Windows does better than Linux with any consistency is attract developer support.

    But, whether that's worth being spied on and the generally crappy experience that's come to characterize Windows, I don't really know. That's up to the individual to decide.

    Windows also does a better job of trampling on the user's freedoms.
