    55> Hm... if they are exactly the same for each machine isn't that a good thing? It allows you hiding in the crowd which is our strategy to beat fingerprinters. That said, I tested it as well with two different Linux machines (and distributions) and on a Windows computer. I got the same fingerprint for the Linux machines but a different one with Windows (which is on one of the Linux boxes, too). Thus, this seems to support the theory that this is an OS-fingerprinting problem. Or did I miss anything?
