Dumping Cisco

1:35 PM -- While we're on the subject of how Vyatta Inc. loves to needle Cisco Systems Inc. (Nasdaq: CSCO)...

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.
Or:

    Vyatta cares about me, John. Something that you stopped doing a long time ago.
Here's the link to Vyatta's "Dear John" page. Wonder if Juniper Networks Inc. (NYSE: JNPR) wishes they'd thought of it first.
