Personally I still can't believe that it's the year 2010, and IOS still
shows routes in classful notation (i.e. if it's in 192.0.0.0/3 and is a
/24, the /24 part isn't displayed because it's assumed to be "Class C").
Of course I say that every year, and so far the only thing that has
changed is the year I say it about.

Don't get me started, I could complain for days and still not run out of
material, but alas it doesn't accomplish anything. Sadly, many of the
best Juniper people I know are incredibly disaffected, and are leaving
(or have already left) in droves. I think the way I heard it put best
was, "I'm convinced that $somenewexecfromcisco is actually on a secret 5
year mission to come over to Juniper, completely $%^* the company, and
then go back to Cisco and get a big bonus for it". :)
