    I think we'll get to that point. What you're missing, and the fact that most in this thread are missing is just how small the Untangle dev team got before the buy out.

    In many ways, we're lucky we got anything done at all over the last almost two years. Untangle was hit HARD by pandemic talent drain.

    Arista actually seems to be addressing that, which is great to see honestly. You can have your *Sense junk, I want a kernel that can use wireguard without security vulns.

    Well that an I'd like a project that doesn't threaten to sue me because I told the world I had hardware that worked with it.

    While I still do have an Untangle Complete subscription until 9/2023 I have switched to OPNsense in the last 2 months.
    The Arista buyout, the missing updates to current Linux etc got me worried and I wanted to be better safe than sorry.

    Has taken a while and a steep learning curve but it's now fully working and has replaced all that Untangle was doing (and more). No fancy graphs and UI but a working thing.

    I have installed it in a proxmox VM (on a Protecli FW6E 6 Port Intel i7 ) and throughput is higher than hardware Untangle (Protecli FW6C - 6 Port Intel i5).

    So I can switch in a second to another solution the day I no longer see Untangle as viable.

    same, i have a Home Complete subscription till next year but i am using OPNsense because of the lack of security updates to Debian/ Linux kernel, and also I cant get Sonos to work on my home network (even without a VLAN!). I got Sonos to work beautifully on OPNsense with the community plugin..so seamless

    Sounds like a lot of Home users/complaints lately. While I do understand there is a Home option...as a commercial IT company supporting commercial clients, none of this has ever been an issue or crossed my mind in regards to Untangle. Other than the Dashboard issue a few weeks back, I dont have any complaints and NGFW/ETM is working great for me and my clients. Still deploying boxes weekly without issue.

    In regards to the comment above about Sonos... thats a network setup issue on your end bud... Im running Sonos at 15-20 clients with ZERO issues... NGFW....Fully managed layer 3 switches, Aruba and UBNT AP's.....Sonos soundbars, subs, Amps, One's, etc... zero issues what so ever. I even run a 4 zone Sonos setup at my house and shop without issue Im listening to it right now behind NGFW>Layer 3 switch and they are connected to UBNT WIFI6 AP's, 6 different AP's actually across 2 buildings... Zero issues. All my Sonos are on a VLAN tied to a specific SSID on the AP's at all my locations....

    Underscoring my point about tone, it's easy to interpret the post I was responding to as an accusation. While my coworkers and I are just words on a screen to most of y'all, they're real human beings whom I interact with on a daily basis. If someone implies something unkind about my coworkers, I find it reasonable to ask what value there is in the statement.

    Some of y'all may never have been through an acquisition like this and might not realize what a sea-change it is. It's not just that my paychecks have a different name at the top: there's a massive cultural shift. Priorities shift or are shifted for us; this is true in Engineering, Marketing, Sales, Support; you name it. Goals change, policies and procedures change, names change. Hell, most of us even had to get new work computers.

    We strive to ensure our products are as high-quality as possible. We're not going to rush things to meet some arbitrary or implied deadline; we have always taken the time to make sure everything was done right and that isn't going to change. In short: we're doing the best we can under challenging circumstances and we appreciate your patience and understanding.

    Edit: This has gotten way off-topic. Out of respect for the OP's question, any further responses unrelated to the thread topic will be removed.

    How can we make Arista ETM products better?
