Warren: For me the greatest asset is the stability... the stability
and performance... The two greatest assets are stability and
performance... and the fact that the commands that you can type
actually do something. The *three* greatest assets are stability
and performance and the fact that the commands that you can type
actually do something... and the ease of the CLI. The *four"
greatest ... no ... Amongst their greatest assets are the stability,
performance, commands that actually DO something, the CLI...... I'll
come in again.
Donald: Juniper's greatest asset over Cisco is the single software
image for all their systems
[Warren bursts in]
Amongst their greatest assets are the stability, performance,
commands that actually DO something, the ability to actually count
the bits that you send... and pretty colors - Oh damn!
 -- You haven't lived until you have spent 4 hours in the middle
of the night trying to figure out why the command that you typed (and
that shows up in the config) doesn't work -- only to be told "Oh,
that doesn't exist in this train, you need to upgrade to <inset some
new version that doesn't include the ability to actually forward
packets or something else equally critical>, we just reused the same
 -- If you haven't run into the "oh, we can either forward packets
*really* fast, or count them, but not both" answer then you haven't
been doing this long enough.
P.S: I neither work for, nor hold any stock of either of the above
