 It's like running apps on Solaris and Oracle these days instead of Linux
and MySQL. Both options work if you know what you're doing, but it's way
easier (and cheaper) to hire admins for the latter.

When was the last time you ran into a younger neteng designing his topology
who went "Yes! IS-IS!"? It works fine (very well in fact) but it's just less

I know there are a lot of guys on here using IS-IS and I'm certainly not
knocking it... </flamewarprotection>
