Apologies and Arcnet

Before I receive hundreds of letters about my faux pas with the
mailer, I am aware of the mistake and apologize for it.

Since I am mailing out this letter, I may as well may it somewhat useful.
I noticed arcnet being discussed here. Now my friends at Clearpoint
use arcnet networking cards with vme bus interfaces for some sort of
distributed memory testing. After seeing arcnet mentioned in this
newsgroup, I have become curious.

Where does arcnet come from?

Who uses it and why (instead of some other networking scheme)?

What are the achievable data rates?

Where can I get literature on arcnet?
