Cisci still hates Microsoft (Windows VPN)

I just read the 'readme' for the VPN Client 5.0. Still no stateful firewall for Vista. Still no 64-bit support.

Where is Cisco? Vista's been coming for over a year. What do you want us to do? Give up on the concentrators and go with Microsoft IAS VPN?

Considering that Nortel doesn't have a VPN client for Vista yet either, I'd say Microsoft hates interoperating with others. They did completely rewrite the network stack, you know.

It's not like they kept it a secret... I've had Vista beta code for over a year, and I'm not even a close developer/customer....

We don't know for how long Microsoft has been working on the Vista development. Developing a new client from scratch takes time.
