I agree that twinax has it's advantages.

The most interesting thing I ever saw on a Cat5/Baluns setup was when one 
person would type on one
dumb terminal, another terminal would emulate the keystrokes exactly, in real 

I insisted that this wasn't possible, until I saw it with my own eyes.

At least with twinax, it either worked, or it didn't work.  Until someone 
turned on another device
and then you start over again.

How many people have received a call, usually early on a Monday morning, that 
starts, "We cleaned up
the office and moved around some of the terminals and now none of them work."  
Or, "Our terminals
won't work anymore"

"Did you do anything to them?"


"Did anyone disconnect any wires?"

"Oh, yeah, <Insert name here> didn't like his/her desk so we moved her across 
the room.  She took
her terminal with her"
