Why token ring?

A frequent question I've gotten in the past couple days, is why I keep mentioning that I need token ring adaptors (both PCMCIA for my new laptop, and PCI/ISA for my old linux box).

The reason is that I work for IBM, the creator, and last hold-out of token ring. Although, honestly, I think the main reason it's still used so much is that so many of the buildings were extensively wired for token ring, and they've got so much token ring hardware, that it seems pointless not to use it.
