Do you know any happy customers?  No traffic equals no scaling
problems.  Right?

Did you see Tim's NANOG presentation?  Seems they are having enough
trouble getting ATM to work in a point to point configuration on a
real network (with delay).  Matches our NAP test findings as well.

Not that ATM is hopeless, just the equipment may not be quite ready
for 1994 deployment in a critical Internet exchange point carrying
lots of TCP wide area traffic.  I think that is still an open question
(deploy first, figure out if it will work later?).
