    JUNOS is the nicest in my opinion. IOS-XR is nice as well. NX-OS meh. IOS sucks. Most other vendors are IOS copy cats.

    I'm just now learning JunOS, so hoping to formulate an opinion on it soon. I'll need to decide if I want to stay with the Cisco track, or move over to Juniper.

    If you're looking to be marketable nothing beats Cisco certs still.

    Have you not found your JNCIP-SP as valuable as your CCNP?

    It definitely doesn't have the broad appeal to employers. It has helped me specifically because I have worked in SP networks that use Juniper routers. I'd still suggest people go Cisco certs first and foremost unless they are already in a Juniper environment. Even then Cisco might help you more in the future.

    For me it all depends on what the requirements are for the issue I'm trying to solve. I'm still learning JunOS and while there are things it does a lot better than IOS (commit, commit confirmed, not having 50+ features turned on out of the box) I don't really like the hierarchy display. Depending on how many features you have turned on it can make the configuration unnecessarily long. I know you can just "display set" but it still doesn't compare to "show run" for me on Cisco IOS.

    Yeah, that's one thing I like about Cisco IOS better. Show run is just easier for me to read at a glance.

    I had to deal with an HP Procurve switch once, with the tagged and untagged port commands. What a POS. HP, never again.

    The more I work with JunOS, the more I actually like how it is structured. If you are looking for specific config info, learning to pipe filters will make life a lot easier. I don't generally look at configs as a whole very often, I am typically looking for a specific policy, tunnel, or NAT. Once I learned how to master the filters, it got a lot easier.

    You're complaining because of tag and untag commands?

    There are things I like and dislike about the way Cisco and Juniper do things. Though, I have to say that I am way more comfortable with Cisco since I don't work much on Junipers. We do have Junipers in the border and other parts of the network. For the most part, we have Cisco stuff.

    I agree with the other guy that mentioned about Palo Alto Networks for firewall.

    Cisco IOS is the worst.... Horrible config management. No API.
