---- Some say Vista Will Double DNS Lookups and Slow Down Entire Internet

So? When the client does a lookup for an uncached host, there will still be two values that the ISP has to fetch instead of one, meaning twice as many requests to the DNS server. So caching is irrelevant, surely?
The statement is slowing down the internet, how does a request that never gets out to the internet in the first place slow down the internet?
Double the load of a typical DNS server and you have nothing to worry about.
AOL might actually have to put in 2 new servers, big deal.
