Good for Google...
I like their stance...their OS, their Platform so they can do what they like. Choice is with the consumer.

...I thought to myself this product sounds so awful it must of been crowdfunded on Indiegogo and to my relief I was right!
Never fund or support anything on Indidgogo! It is the wild west of crowd funding. So many scams and failed ideas come out of this terrible piece of the internet.
Intel have taken advantage of corporate enterprises and home users for years by setting artificially high prices in a market they had total domination in. During that time Moore's law hasn't been maintained due to Intel holding back innovation and maximising margins on existing chip architecture. Now this all comes out in the wash and most people have lost at least 10-35% performance depending on architecture and usage surely people now need to wake up and realise that there is another x86 vendor (AMD) waiting in the wings along with ARM and IBM Power chips to take them into the next generation.
Please wake up and realise that Intel have been robbing and lying to you for long while!
Why does it always seem to be Indiegogo that attracts the scammers? I got scammed last year via them on a product that never arrived and the company disappeared into the ether. When I complained the response was 'talk to the company not us'! When I went to my credit card provider to report the scam they chased Indiegogo for the evidence and they gave my bank the same message, bugger off and don't bother us, thus no refund to my credit card, helpful. They just don't care or have any vetting process in place. Scammers central.
My advice would be avoid Indiegogo to avoid said scamming disappointment.
Honestly you like Cisco, good go Cisco. Carry on taking the blue pill.
You want freedom of choice, any HW and OS and want intent based networking then look at Apstra. Take the red pill and come into a world of freedom and choice.
It really doesn't have to be difficult or a lock in to a single vendor...
Honestly? Fibre Channel? Why would you design a super quick storage array and glue legacy technology such as fibre channel to it? Ethernet and Infiniband technology is currently pushing storage around at 100Gbps and 200Gbps while using RDMA (RoCE) to obtain very low latency and very high throughput. Fibre Channel is dead in modern infrastructures. Let it die!
...yep if the authorities know which people are in posession of this type of material then that makes me feel a lot safer as I sleep at night.
I think I'd rather have a Goverment that knows everything about everyone rather than a Government knowing nothing and my friends and family not returning home one day.
....sort of makes this rootkit issue a non starter. Having to brute force the router which should be protected with a AAA TACACS or Radius server, and on an out of band management interface with ACL's would make this very very very difficult to achieve.
However if the rootkit code is added to a version of IOS binary then system admins could actually be installing the rootkit and not knowing. Advice would be to only download binarys from cisco.com and not to get them from any where else. Also check the MD5 and checksum hashes to make sure they match on cisco.com.
This is all just standard best practice. Common sense rules all.
