Jwoody: eh, Cogs was right, you should do a bit of reading, start by reading his comment again! He makes two statements: quoted from Wikipedia: "AppleTalk was not built on the archetypal Xerox XNS system, as the intended target was not Ethernet" and: "It also confirms that Localtalk was a RS422 serial network."

He doesn't say anything about AppleTalk being based on LocalTalk!

  • South West 2009 show report
