The majority of the source is available, but FOSS zealots love to complain about a number of binary blobs that exist within the DD-WRT source tree. There are also special versions of DD-WRT only available by purchase.
Facebook has crowdsourced the majority of the work involved in its foreign-language translations, and as far as I know, it's not faced any legal repercussions because of it.
If I just shut down explorer.exe in XP and try to go about launching applications and trying to get the OS to do various things, I think some things will fail since the shell isn't running.
Have you tried? Sure, launching things from the Task Manager is inconvenient, but nothing really breaks because Explorer isn't running.
VS2010 includes no IntelliSense for unmanaged C++ code – that is, C++ that doesn't use
It wasn't contrived and forced like in Duke Nuke'm Forever.
Given the massive amount of awesome Gearbox pulled off with Borderlands, I was really disappointed with DNF. Then again, when you're given shit to polish, you're still polishing shit.

The extra RAM also helped amazingly with the stability, too. I tried putting Windows 3.11 on a 166MHz Pentium with 64MB RAM years ago on a lark, and was shocked at just how performant the installation was. I mean, you couldn't really do much due to the lack of modern backported software, but what it could do, it did fantastically.
No, it was done because the NT kernel in 7 is hardly different from that in Vista, so technically, it was just a
Pardon me if I'm not understanding your setup or your problem properly, but in your Network and Sharing Center (Control Panel, Network and Internet, Network and Sharing Center), you should find a list of all connected networks with their various non-descriptive names (“Network 2”, how useful).
