Agree, but my conclusion is that people preparing for Cisco certs get shoked
when someone tells them that Cisco is not the best. I know cause it happened
to me. I can see it also on the fact that after my statement I only received
e-mails contradicting me but without any doc too. They just feel Cisco is
better.

Asunto: Re: QOS on PIX


Did you happen to notice that that document was published in
July of 2001?  A lot of things can change in nearly 3 years
of feature releases/software updates.  (One big thing that I
know of was the introduction of the FWSE.)  I am not saying that
either one is faster, just that I would want to see more recent
(and, therefore, relevant) information before I would be willing
to make a judgement.

Regardless, this is not the proper forum for this.  We are not
on this list to decide which product is better, but rather how
to configure Cisco routers, and switches.
