The  Juniper ERX edge routers are what isn't  "real"  JunOS.
It's as if they were trying to make a clone of the IOS CLI:

That's because Juniper bought the ERX series from Unisphere.  
It's not a "real" JunOS.  

My suggestion: if you make a lot of changes stay away from 
the ERXs, but if you don't do much to them they will mostly 
purr along just fine.  I was running them fairly hard, with 
30K plus ATM/DSL subs per router...
