Vendor Stuff

When Cisco or Microsoft invite you to a technical presentation you always leave with a lot of great information. I feel educated. I feel really excited about the technology. But what I learned about other vendors (looking at you Symantec and Quest vRanger), what ever their invite reads, it’s a pure sales pitch.
I seriously don’t mind they they pitch the product, by all means. Do! But if you invite engineers (as in, not sales staff) to TECHNICAL presentation I don’t care about your stock price. I don’t care about your sales model. I don’t care about your merger. I don’t care. Tell me what problem you are solving, how to install it and how to fix it.

One more thing, if you give me a free t-shirt I’ll love you for at least a year. Or until your competitor gives me t-shirt.
