Regarding Tom Beach's response to the SCSI Marketing Meeting Minutes,
and the minutes themselves, the confusion re: SCSI is ever-increasing,
what with references to Ultra SCSI, Fast-20, Fast-40 being thrown around
with new products. The third of these names is, of course, actually a
reference to Wide Fast-20, but who wouldn't be confused seeing these 3
seemingly different flavors of SCSI being attributed to new products???
Is there now a new meaning for SCSI-3, i.e., 3 names for the same
interface? Of course, then, the other interpretation of SCSI-3's name
could be based on the fact that there are 3 flavors of serial SCSI.
I have been seeing articles and press releases lately that use the term
Fast-40, and its use has a snowball effect, so it looks like the Mktg.
group could do a lot to hopefully alleviate confusion.
