It's in print, so it must be true...

Just when you think Padlipsky and Karn have hit the depths of extremism,
here we have something from the other side of the spectrum:

Reading from the Opinions section of Network World, August 29, 1988 on
page 27, from an article entitled "The long, bumpy migration path to
OSI":

    "OSI, on the other hand is significantly superior to TCP/IP in every
    way: at every protocol layer, in every class of protocol and in
    every application, the richness of OSI application-layer protocols
    is evident to every user."

The author's name is Jeff Horn, he is a consultant with Network
Strategies, Inc., a communications consulting firm in Fairfax, VA.

Phil -- I encourage you to send a nasty letter to either the author or
Network World. This is the second time in one week when I've read an
article claiming the technical superiority of OSI over TCP/IP at every
layer. The last article I read said that "OSI was significantly faster
than TCP/IP".

Have fun,
