Vyatta recently started encouraging its users to write "Dear John" letters, wherewith IT managers can tell Cisco CEO John Chambers why open-source routing has captured their hearts. A sample:
- You have always wanted to blend in as many features as possible, to be perfect for everybody. I have always wanted to stick with the core solutions that are important to me. What's funny is, it took me so long to realize that we're so different.
- Vyatta cares about me, John. Something that you stopped doing a long time ago.
