    Depricated networking that apple developed that supported network device discovery and configuration. It's quite legacy.

    Some old ethernet printers hanging around that use it though.

    And if you turn it off, sometimes some of the printers and computers file sharing will vanish.

    Mainly the Apple File stuff is likely all that is left, along with some old printers.

    Some interesting trivia about AppleTalk...

    AppleTalk was called that originally because of the same apple orchard acid trip that gave Steve Jobs the idea to call the company "Apple."

    There's more of course. Very moving stuff. I recommend the book to everyone.
