Huawei looks very much like IOS, except many of the commands were
renamed. Someone mentioned a reason to me, but I don't know if it was
true, so I won't repeat it.
IOS at least supports | section, and I hear that IOS-XR and IOS-XE both
have advanced configuration capabilities similar to Junos, but I don't
own any of the hardware that supports those code bases.
I've yet to find a router vendor I liked 100%, though. Limited feature
sets, interoperability problems, bugs, and months to resolve issues and
generally requiring upgrades to code that has new issues. :(
But as you said, we all have our own tastes... Mine just happens to be
for a non-existent company/product.
