/drek'net/ [Yiddish/German "dreck", meaning filth] Deliberate distortion of
DECNET, a networking protocol used in the VMS community. So called because DEC
helped write the Ethernet specification and then (either stupidly or as a
malignant customer-control tactic) violated that spec in the design of DRECNET
in a way that made it incompatible. See also connector conspiracy.
