Well put! Startups require a different mindset. Obviously "startup-shutup" has a bone to pick. Wish he would "shutup"!

I wish Force10 folks all the best.

On another note, anyone used this what do y'll think? With a PCI bus, should be able to deliver some decent interfaces for free (or cheap).

literight,

thanks for the link. interesting stuff. i wonder how this is going to pan out once pci is outdated and pcie takes over - which is imminent if Intel have their way.

Of course, the same software ought to run, but new hardware would be required. and i would think some amount of platform sw effort too.

but nice link anyway. i do wish the open source community all the luck. i'm myself a big fan.

re: Sources: Force10's Prepping Its IPO Hi Folks,

Honestly, I have made my money and moved on. I am now pursuing a much greater venture in my life and have decided not to hate or control what anyone else will do. I have quite a large family thank you all for helping them when I'm gone.

Suggest you do the same. You are wasting your time on this board if you are not doing research. I am currently researching my next opportunity that may or may not involve the use of existing services from Force20 and I don't want them to think I hate them anymore. Let bye-gones be bye-gones. There is opportunity for all the substandard companies. Cisco is a good company. Foundry is a good company. These were my favorites in my 36 year networking career and now I have retired. I wish you all the luck and to those of you who want to know how it ended, the construction contract landed the biggest deal in my career of selling networking services. Just follow the bouncing ball and location is everything.

Good luck Force10. Good luck Foundry! Good luck Cisco!

re: Sources: Force10's Prepping Its IPO >> It is apparent that you do not have that spirit and many people do not. So, the startup thing is not for you.

Startup in present form (where employees have NO CONTROL on how the end game is played out) is not for me. I moved to better companies and watch startup struggle from side lines ....

Also forgot to mention that I have income by steady extraction of home equity (no need to struggle in a startup for income, I earn income by "sleeping in house"). Please read the following article to understand how I do it:

Wow! That's some change of hearth! Living off the very industry you seemed so fond of trashing on these boards, besides trashing start ups, of course.

I figured out GǣSCAM OF THE CENTURYGǥ:

1. Government prints money

2. Excess money is injected inthe marketplace as easy credit

3. People who can see through this scheme rush to obtain credit

4. After getting credit approval they buy asset which is most likely to appreciate

5. Frequent asset transaction generates profit for asset sellers and middlemen

6. Savers loose by NOT choosing to participate in this money-printing money-looting game

7. Foolish workers choose to work in startups to chase dreams only to be shattered later.

re: Sources: Force10's Prepping Its IPO Funny, most companies REALLY ready to do an IPO generally try to keep it very low key, not all over the public boards.

This has the smell of another private round-tout: "Look, we can talk about an IPO".

That sort of stuff is so, err, '98-'00.

Kestrel comes to mind.
