Why does Nexus NXOS use ‘switchto’ instead of ‘changeto’ for the CLI ?
In recent months I seem to have hit a lot of bugs in Cisco software. Across the board on the main software releases of IOS, NX-OS or IOS-SX I seem to be hitting a wide range of bugs, and some of them are pretty stupid. And I’ve realised that, in recent years, it has become so commonplace, so accepted that we actually plan our projects with time to test, locate and check for bugs. And that’s become an expensive and time-consuming problem.

Too harsh ? IBM and HP don’t rely on resellers to win business. Why does Cisco ?
HP doesn’t have a firewall product in Western markets. Why the bloody hell not ?
Because nothing says “Cloud Computering” like a Wireless LAN Controller.
Someone made a comment that Packet Pushers hasn’t discussed SPB as alternative to TRILL or other Fabric solutions. Here’s why.

I was vaguely aware of TRILL and Cisco implementation (Fabric Path), but came to the table (so to speak) with no pre-conceptions of what I might expect. SCI-FI – Is this just me? Is the Q in QFabric taken from sci-fi [...]

Got a nasty shock this morning when I went pay for Cisco Live Europe.
It’s time to start demanding that vendors make their emulators available to their customers so that we can save money, improve customer value, and increase the Networking Market.
