Network devices

Quick question for any networking experts out there: if you have a PC connected to a hub, and it sends out a packet of data, does that go to every machine connected to that hub, or every other machine? I.e. does the originating machine get a copy? The documentation I've read seems to be a bit inconsistent on this point.

Thus a poll:

Does a hub send traffic back to the originating machine?

Yes
3(60.0%)
No
0(0.0%)
Depends on the hub
0(0.0%)
I don't know
2(40.0%)
What's a hub?
0(0.0%)
