Re: $110,000 for Gated Source Code

  • From: Alex P. Rudnev

There is ONLY (ONLY) two well-debugged and wideworld checked router 
implementation now - first is CISCO IOS, second is GATED. 
First is checked over million  CISCOs, second was 
by MERIT's back-bone, by a lot of ISP who used gated for their host-based 
routers, and now by those vendors who implemented gated into their 
routers. I do not think it's an excellent product (through nothing is 
excellent in the Internet), but in comparation to the other 
implementation it's out of competition for now (remember a lot of 
Internet bums caused by Wellfleet? RIP broadcast storms over the 
inter-sea links caused by Annex? And so on...).

Through the world is changed every day.
