You obviously didn't read the reason why this is bad.  There have been holes 
in network virtualization as well.  Software has bugs - you won't get a 
software vendor to guarantee zero bugs.

"People" (Marketing droids) said unix was dead around the turn of the century 
(don't believe the Marketing dribble).  And the old Interstate 35W bridge was 
built to last 100 years  - it only made it to about 40 - it was certified as 
safe the year before it collapsed (don't brush off warnings just because 
someone who knows the system says it is safe).
