GOOD THINGS COME TO THOSE WHO WAIT The Ratification of IEEE P1394b

In addition to its native-mode communications protocols, 1394 does support running IP over it. This makes it an excellent networking platform. Several of the newer operating systems, especially from Microsoft, take advantage of the ability to run IP over top of 1394. In fact, the newer XP-based code loads an IP stack onto a 1394 interface by default during setup. This means that if you do not have Ethernet jacks on your computers, but they do have 1394 interfaces, you can connect your machines together using 1394 and take advantage of 1394b's higher speeds and longer distances.
