"Well it occurred to me while playing with this very nice piece
of gear from Cisco that really the $50k doesn't actually buy you
very much, in the not too distant past there was a huge gap in
performance, features and reliability between Cisco gear and a
commodity Linux server. This gap has gone Linux is now more
reliable than IOS (so much so that Cisco use it in IOS-XE), the
features found in IPTables and its flexibility blow IOS away, as
for performance well a well equipped x86 server will outperform any
Cisco router/firewall by a huge margin."
