"I am not sure what is meant by "effective deterrent" here. Does
mean you guys would like to deter windows users from running servers?
Or deter windows users period?"
It means neither, because you've kind of gotten it sideways.
What was meant by my comments was that the REASON you already
don't see many W32 Tor servers is because everyone who tries to run
them (or nearly everyone, anyway) is having problems KEEPING them
running (if they can get them to run at all).
It has absolutley nothing whatsoever to do with "restricting"
anyone (in this case, all W32 users") from the Tor net or from
running servers - although I would like to bring out myself that this
may be the Tor developers only alternative (assuming W32 users can be
identified and "blocked" at all) if W32 users overload the existing
nodes, or bring about the possibility of government interference due
to W32 (or others', of course) use of the Tor network for
Hope that makes sense now. Pete
