Yeah, you heard me, gigabit Token Ring. They not only had 100 meg standard. They also released a gigabit standard. There are apparently no implementations of the gigabit but you can still get the 100 meg. The fact that someone even decided to standardize the gigabit standard is amazing. You have to wonder what those last meetings were like. Were they just going through the motions or did they actually think they might sell some gear.
