    I know a lot of us here have used both Hamachi and Logmein in the past, so I reckoned this would be of interest to some: Logmein Acquires Instant VPN Creator

    Essentially Logmein has purchased Hamachi. I don't know what, if anything, will change about the program (maybe they'll call it Logmein Hamachi just to make it jibe with the rest of their products), but I think this is a good move on everyone's part.

    I suppose everyone better download a copy of it now before they start charging for it. It will probably suffer the same fate as Everest.

    What's Everest, and what's the story behind it? I'm guessing it was free, got bought up, and stopped being free?
