Why is the networking business dozing through Meltdown/Spectre?

Get a snooze free, for a limited time.

Sleeping until all the guff is worked out may be a reasonable tactic, but cannot be sustained as a principle policy, much was unknown and waiting until 'others' have worked it out has some merit especially if they cannot contribute anything beneficial themselves.

If you avoided all the crashes with earlier patches that may have been a benefit, and even if manufacturers had a patch some still would not have rolled it out.

So we now know, separate your cloud usage from others for number one , use Google patch for number two, and Microsoft for number three.

Time to wake up now.
