| Since its debut in February 2006, Vyatta network software has been
| downloaded nearly 100,000 times, the company says. Like other Linux and open

| cost purchase and implementation , proponents say.


Vyatta Delivers Twice the Performance of Cisco at Half the Price

,----[ Quote ]
| Vyatta today announced the release of independent third-party testing
| results from The Tolly Group that measured the throughput and
| performance of the open-source, x86-based Vyatta router and
| firewall appliance versus the proprietary Cisco 2821 ISR.
| "This report shatters the myth that proprietary hardware products
| are a better choice than standard x86-based systems for network
| infrastructure," said Dave Roberts, VP of strategy and marketing
| at Vyatta. "For the majority of routing applications, open-source
| software and x86-based hardware can easily address the performance
| requirements and at significantly lower price points."

| consumer markets.

| networking and computing infrastructure with better manageability and lower
| costs than other legacy solutions.

Elive is a nice-looking distro. It's based on Debian- which makes it
cooler. Wow, look at all of that eye-candy goodness!

Linus is right. There are so many different needs. One distro simply
cannot solve all problems. Advanced users may not want a distro that
newbies enjoy using. I think having a wide variety of distros is great,
and people will be able to find the one that fits them just right. :)
