shock and awe

I haven’t been shocked by computing in a while.  I’m configuring this IBM FC SAN switch for the first time ever.  It is actually an IBM labeled Brocade switch running Brocade Fabric OS.  It turns out Fabris OS is…  LINUX!  (dramatic dum dum dum!)

Now I am rarely surprised when it comes to finding these types of things, but this really did shock me.  Brocade is the Cisco of storage networks, so this is on the level of discovering that Cisco IOS was indeed Linux… wouldn’t that shock everyone?

back to work.
