One who is obsessed with collecting DEC Tulip-based network cards. The Tulip 21140 10/100 chipset is one bad mutha, and was discontinued when Intel bought Digital Semiconductor. There are clones, such as the Lite-on PNIC, but they're not quite the same, as they don't have the Digital logo scrawled over the front.

Tu`lip*o*ma"ni*ac (?), n.

One who is affected with tulipomania.
