True, and to second that with some facts, companies who were making this
their mainstay, are in much pain, on top of their economic status,
because of Intel seemingly cancelling their projects.

Several companies in Austin, TX were chomping at the bit for people to
come work on Infiniband technology, but there has been nothing new
relating to this climate for a very long time...and probably won't be
unless Intel, HP, IBM, someone with deep pockets and a marketing machine
can show it's viable for consumer use.
