Reminds me of the early 1980s argument that DOS was better because it
ran off floppies and didn't need a disk.

You get a far less capable platform with IOS with no capability at all
for long term logging, no capability for local analysis of logs, etc.
We now have to deploy separate Unix boxes so we have some sort of
intelligent device in the POP to do NM stuff.
