now *that* i agree with, and to be even more specific, it's not that any of
us are against making profits... it's that many of these vendors, and
service providers, have decided to make a profit at the expense of
*everything* else (good service, happy customer, etc).
Demonstrably (proof by existence), those switches can be made reasonably
reliable. So can be routers. It's the fabled computer tech culture of "be
crappy, ship fast, pile features sky high, test after you ship" aka OFRV's
Micro$oft envy, which is the root evil.
i truly wonder how low the economy, and specifically this industry, is
going to have to go before this paradigm is shifted.
