I am surprised, (well, maybe not), that you aren't concerned about
the excessive overhead present in FDDI networks...

FDDI is not a WAN technology. Losing 20% of bandwidth of a 10 ft
piece of fiber is one thing. Losing 20% of bandwidth of a
$3M/yr circuit is quite different.

ATM as a LAN is probably ok, if it can compete with Gb Ethernet
