And of course it was a bad port. In order to put TCP/IP in AmigaOS, NSDI basically took half of the BSD kernel, as well as much of the userland including etc/passwd, bin/ls, and ported it to the Amiga, which faciliatated a lot of bad ports from UNIX. Credit where credit's due, they also made a lot of good adaptations, such as file notification support, an ARexx interface and so on.
RoadShow seems to take a different approach, dispensing with the AMITCP:db directory and arcade commands.
