Ya'll can chuckle but my house was wired for 16Mb Token-Ring in the early 90s.
Why should I? In the 1990's I was still to young to even know about Token Ring, so in a way I envy you. ;-)
I even recompiled Linux Kernel to have T/R support. (Fedora as I recall)
Must have been something else. Fedora appeared in 2002. Usually, for years, everything driver'ish was compiled as a loadable kernel module if possible and shipped in /lib/modules. But still, the 1990's were the time where people were compiling their kernels themselves for performance reasons.
I still have ONE connection at my workbench labeled "T/R Port 12." :-)
Neat! But I guess, there's no TR equipment anymore?
That 16Mb blew 100Mb Ethernet away in the hub days!
Yes, it did!
