Since several people have brought it up, I work with Junipers on
a daily basis.  They have done some good things, and seem to have
an upper hand in routing performance when compared to Cisco's.
That said, I don't think they are immune to my complaints, and in
fact since they are using a lot of standard parts you'd think they
might be doing lots more than they are...
