Re: GSR, 7600, Juniper M?, oh my!

They tend to be (in our experience) a "set it and forget it" thing, while you can spend considerable time tweaking your Cisco; but admittedly ours is just an M5 edge (two gig-Es into an OC48). The rest of our gear is Cisco, and yes, we draw straws to see who has to mess with the Juniper when it has to be messed with.Never under any condition let anyone tell you that Juniper is perfect... But, as everyone that uses both will tell you, it is "better" (at most things).
And speaking ancient history, we retired a 7505/RSP1 to the testbed a few years ago. It had two 6E cards (original core) and later a 2FE to play router-on-a-stick to a 5500/NFFC-II.
We're now using 6500s (core) and 4500s/3550s (distribution). The old RSP1 looks pretty silly now :-)
