TCP/IP was okay when it was created and is a real bastard with what we have to fit across it now. It's like ATM. As time grows the problems with it only get compounded.

I think you're thinking of IPv4

IPv4 is only an addressing scheme for IP. It's not a problem like the windows or *NIX time flaw except when it runs out.

TCP specifically is not good for solid broadband connections that don't suffer from collisions and packet loss the same way as would older connection methods.

Don't get me wrong, it's not like they chose a bad format. But it's not that great with modern broadband connectivity.
