If everyone would just get over themselves and start using Linux we
could all enjoy named pipes. :)
But seriously, do you have a list of circumstances that prevent sockets
Personally, I'm inclined to consider it a bug if any software prevents
IPC via loopback sockets, but there may be a good reason worth learning.
And even if the reasoning turns out not to be good, it's useful to
know about limitations imposed on otherwise-reliable mechanisms.
