Re: Some vendors
Yes, it's of course well said that when you get something for free, you get what you pay for. There's usually something unsaid in a offer of free stuff, or at least in the fine print. It's usually better to pay a fair price for something of value or be willing to settle for the fine print agreements to give up something in return.

Re: Some vendors
Whenver something is free, it has its' pitfalls--the key, of course, is to make sure the due dilligence is done on a constant and consistent basis.

Re: Some vendors
I think the transparency of open source is just too compelling, maybe harder for rogue programmers to hide back doors in open source.

Re: Some vendors
@donbrowne those are considerable challenges. However, I do think the payoff will, ultimately make it worth addressing them all.

Re: Some vendors
Yes, there's certainly going to be some vendors out there furrowing their brows wondering just how to compete with open source. While as noted there's still some significant potholes in the road, i.e.  how you go about "changing management systems, how you deploy spares, how you train your people."

Some vendors
Some vendors must not be happy about open source solutions making switches to other vendors easier to do, as in the example given where an upgrade to 200G may be more easily done when open source is used, and when a current vendor does not offer such an upgrade.
