I said BusLogic is the best *alternative* *to* Adaptec.  I didn't say
it was the *best* *choice* of all controllers.  "Alternative to" means
that if you want something *other* *than* Adaptec, BusLogic is your
best choice.  I specifically included all the options, and didn't give
preference to any (i. e. I prefer BusLogic, many others prefer
Adaptec).  Get those reflexes checked -- those knee-jerks might damage
