Tom,

You complain about GPIB cables being stiff. True, but being able to screw themconnectors in place can be desireable, especially in product test settings. GPIB connectors are far more robust than Ethernet and USB. USB is great for quick connections on the bench, but GPIB cables won't pull out. Yes, Ethernet cable have clips to hild them in, but are flimsy compared to GPIB.

I would also argue that GPIB is easier to implement than you say. There are a time when GPIB was as hard as you say, but the software has gotten much better.
