In the DOS/Windows world, it's OPTLINK, by SLR Systems. Probably the most
famous story goes that the Word-For-Windows people at Microslop
(oops...Microsoft) would start a link and go home. The next morning, it
would be done. They bought OPTLINK, and cut the link to 15-20 minutes.
The second-most-famous story: Someone complained on Borland's forum about
Turbo Linker's poor speed. One of the engineers (possibly Daivd
Intersimone) replied "Well, you need OPTLINK"
