Not true. AppleTalk over LocalTalk is limited to 230kbps, but AppleTalk over
Ethernet uses the full available bandwith of the Ethernet connection, which
is (in theory) 10Mbps. It is true that AppelTalk is a rather verbose
protocol compared to, say, TCP/IP, but still, AppleTalk over Ethernet is
*way* faster than any serial connection, including LocalTalk.
