> To the argument that Cisco IOS is inherently easier or harder to configure
This is a joke... there is nothing more complex and orderless than
IOS's config -
This is my last comment on IOS vs. Gated, but:
Some things are super-elegant and thus easy to predict and use.
Unix and its kernel and utilities is. NT/Windows/Mac from the
programming side are not.
Bay is not. Proteon is not. Gated (for me, so far) is not.
Microrouters are not. Morningstars are/(?were?). Livingstons
Now, I can program all of the above from memory. But I actually
do find IOS smoother and easier to use and adopt new features in.
I actually took to IOS fairly quickly, I believe. I know I took
to it much faster than I did to gated, because I spent 20 hours
and couldn't get gated working due to a total lack of *good*
docs. 6-9 months ago the most common question on the gated lists
was "can anyone post SOME working configuration"?
