I don't agree with this.
ISO/OSI (on the whole) failed because it cost too much to purchase and
implement. TCP/IP was given away and worked after a fashion. Why suffer the
pain of a FTAM install when ftp came bundled and did the same basic job?

IMHO, it's marketing, pure and simple. (a la VHS/Beta etc.)
