Really, Cisco, really ?


I was reading Cisco release notes for their VPN client and spotted this gem:

VPN client fails to install on Linux kernel version is 2.6.31 and above. The workaround is to downgrade to one of the Linux distributions supported by the VPN Client.

Their supported Linux distros:

  • Red Hat 6.2 with Kernel 2.2.12 (released in 2000)
  • Red Hat 9 with Kernel 2.4.20 (released in 2003)
  • Fedora Core 8 with Kernel 2.6.23 or 2.6.24 (released in 2007)

Is it always like this with corporate/enterprise software ? In someway it explains why IE6 is still the dominant browser after all these years.
