AFP is arguably part of the AppleTalk protocol stack. Certainly everybody
talked about it that way years ago before AFP started to run atop IP as well
as DDP. Nowadays, as far as Mac OS is concerned, AFP runs *only* atop IP. If
you still think of AFP as a layer of the AppleTalk protocol stack, then I
suppose it's reasonable to say Mac OS still has AppleTalk support. But I've
never heard anyone talk that way.
