  Or maybe, everyone stops at cisco sometime in their career.

  Although, I know lots of smart smart smart people who haven't.
  One of them is looking for a job, and he's not looking at cisco.
  (not me...)

And since we have *never* had a Cisco in our own network, as the
largest dialup IP provider in the UK if not Europe (as a single
company), we have gone from not seeing the need to not seeing the
point or buying and Cisco gear. It's like IBM was in the 60s/70s.
"No one ever got fired for buying Cisco." Sheesh.
