Facebook says vendor secrets forced it to homebrew switches

Mr C

FB is in a position to build a homebrew switch

throw enough resources at it and you can do things outside of your usual field of expertise (which for FB is social stuff)

Good for them that they stepped away from big vendors who think they need secret codes to hold on to their position. Needing months to fix bugs is sometimes also an eternity.

I've long seen such deplorable behavior and some vendors can get away with it in 99% of the cases since the little guy (little company) doesn't have the resources to take them on.

How ironic would it be if FB ever released these switches with their own secret code build in
