Jim Pinto Article on Ethernet Vs. Fieldbus

Jim Pinto, a name that everyone in the automation business should be familiar with, has written a good article on the differences between Ethernet and fieldbus, and the shortcoming that must be addressed with Ethernet to make it suitable for plant level applications.  This is a good antidote to a lot of the press going around recently extolling the imminent demise of fieldbus in favor of its ethereal cousin.  Read about it in Automation World.
