GigaRouter (Was Re: Cisco as Big Brother))

Gated would dump core like crazy and lose routes and adjacencies 5
years ago and it does the same now. Well, on the second thought, I
don't think there's any real reason to bitch about it - all the other
free reference stuff (sendmail, inn, etc, etc. Even 4.4) is plagued
with the same problems. And everybody is kind of accustomed to the
status quo. As of data structures - I remember there was a course on data
structures on my first university year. And you know what? I haven't
seen anything new since then - gated or no gated.

Absolute crap. gated does not dump core and does not lose routes, certainly
not on my routers which peer at the LINX, with BTnet, and RAIN. What I have
to do is mail other people constantly because the cisco gets confused about
subnets and the like:
