Here's our SVN tree - where's yours?

We've been getting lots of good coverage by the media and bloggers (thanks for the posts and comments!) since our launch a few weeks ago. Believe it or not, we try to keep up with the various posts and comments because we feel that input from the community is absolutely critical to our success. And, that burning on our ears makes us think that lots of you out there are talking about our company.

One comment that seems repeats every so often is that there are lots of other products in the networking world that are based on some open source operating system. For example, Juniper's JunOS is based on FreeBSD. What makes us different is that we're not just merely based on open source, but rather our entire code is open source. That means you can see and take every line of code that we have in our product - and we plan on keeping it that way. Our code base is in a Subversion tree right here. Go ahead, take it, use it, add to it as you see fit for your business :)

We believe that open source software running on commodity hardware (mainly x86-based) is the future of the networking world. We don't think that we're alone in this vision, just that we are working hard to help lead the charge.
