According to http://www.davesite.com/webstation/net-history2.shtml
TCP/IP replaced NCP on the net in 1983, roughly 20 years ago :)
The original ARPANet (the Internet's early name) was created circa 1968
wayyyyyy before TCP was even thought up.
A quick google search for "Internet history TCP/IP" should yield you a fair
bit of background reading.
Hope this helps ya.

TCP/IP is not just internet oriented... TCP/IP has been used for a lot
of networking stuff long before the internet came about... remember, the
internet (as we know it today) has only been around for a decade or
so... anyway, TCP/IP is not limited just to the internet and one would
be foolish to restrict one's self from using it whenever they can...
look around you... look at the other networks and their protocols...
where are they today? in many cases, they are defunct and obsolete if
they are even still being used at all...
