I was totally green to Cisco IOS when I was working on the
Arrowpoint at the time. I liken the bugs on the CSS to normal cisco IOS
quirks/bugs. (Complete with TAC trying to come up with reasons certain
features weren't available yet.)

I remember upgrading my Arrowpoint 1100 the first time Cisco released the
code for it and thinking the only thing they changed was the startup ASCII
logo. :-)

We all hedged bets that Cisco was going to absorb the CSS and just make it
a software feature on the Catalyst switches. I haven't heard of that
actually happening yet though.
