A colleague sent me this link (a Cisco and Intel site flogging gigabit Ethernet over copper) asking "are we doing this?"

We are running gig over copper for some servers, but gig to the deskop is still a few years off for us.

What cracks me up about the promo is that you could do a "search and replace" on 'Gigabit over Copper' with 'AplleTalk over Fiber' and have a spiel that sounds almost exactly like a video tape I have from 1988 by DuPont Optoelectronic Systems extoling the virtues of running your Mac network on fiber.
