  Fair warning...when you notice that it outperforms most 100Mbit
ethernet networks by a significant margin, you'll want to convert your
entire network to it.  I did, as did nearly everyone that I hang out

       Four Alphas on FDDI
       Two Crays on FDDI
       Twelve SPARCs on FDDI
       One Mac on FDDI
       ...with no end in sight!
