I remember way back hearing the IB was going to be the technology to
replace all those various buses (PCI, etc) on a motherboard , then it
all went quiet and then it re-emerged as an interconnect. So perhaps
Intel (who were part of one of the two groups that merged to create IB)
have thoughts again on this?
 interestingly a similar comment appears on the IB Wikipedia page
under history, but sadly without references..
