There is so little bias I can't tell if I agree or not. I _think_
you're suggesting that Ethernet-on-board would be nice, but not as
easy as SCSI, and probably not worth the effort. Since I can't
volunteer to design an Ethernet adapter (I am, after all, just a
software weenie) I have to agree: Ethernet is nice but not
important to me.
