Even though the earliest LANs were of this genre, by 1989 it appeared that they were on the way out. By 1992, however, new life had been breathed into peer-to-peer networking by both Novell and Microsoft, along with the popularity of Artisoft's LANtastic. We will take a close look at peer-to-peer LANs at a deeper level in some future posts
