Can't keep my mouth shut anymore.... I managed them all - FW1, Pixes and
Netscreen and in my opinion, Netscreen is the best all around product:
1. easy to manage for CLI challanged
2. full blown CLI for UNIX dudes
3. very stable and performant
4. reasonably priced
5. no window$ invloved ( why FW1 is still around? )
