Had one of these (and only one)... told them I only had Mac's at home, and the guy got belligerent and said I was lying, then finally after telling him that over and over for a good minute he basically said FU and hung up. Can't imagine what they'd say if I said I only ran Linux, or something really obscure ("Sorry, I only run OpenVMS"). =D So yeah... guess their scheme falls over pretty quickly if you don't have a Windows box...

Toastman Tomato, far and away. Tested DDWRT, Tomato, Asus-Merlin, stock Asus... none of them, except Toastman, did everything I needed (ipv6, dns, nat local redirect, upnp/nat-pmp, etc). Been using it for over 6 months, have never been happier with a home router. That said, pretty sure they haven't patched Heartbleed yet (supposed to be coming anytime).

So, are they going to give their chips porn names? Piledriver? Someone needs to clue these guys in... Just calling your stuff by construction equipment names doesn't make it cool. I'm a Mac user, and I still hate the fact Apple has latched onto this "let's call our products by their code names" crap. Guess I should look forward to the days of AMD's Cleveland Steamer processors.
