Real world performance for unswitched 10baseT and 10base2 was determined 
by the node count.  Large networks were miserable.

I had 10Base2 at home not too many years ago, and yes, performance was 
pretty good.  I had three nodes on my network :)

My "real world" throughput on 10baseT comes from sitting on 100+ port 
hubs.  I could hit 1 mbps if I was lucky, when the network was quiet. 
Normal performance was more like 100 kbps.
