The first time I heard about GNS3 was when I joined university in the networking department, it was in the second year when our dr. was tired of seeing Pack Tracer, he shouted: “WHY THE HELL YOU STILL USE THIS RUBBISH?”. I wasn’t informed or even imaged that I will be able to find a software that runs Cisco IOS images and allow me to do everything I do on a Cisco router. That was a huge difference in my life.
Until that moment back in 2008 and until this day of writing this post. I am still using GNS3. I even got myself a new Dell laptop with a better processor, 8GB RAM just to be comfortable and invest in time, more learning that tweaking my resources.

Thank you Team GNS3, Thank you GNS3 for everything you’ve made available for free. You really have no idea how much money, time, effort you saved people especially students like me who can’t afford buying a router or/and a firewall.
1. Thank you so much for helping me graduate.
2. Thank you so much for helping me pass CCNA.
3. Thank you so much for helping me study for CCNA Security.
4. Thank you so much for making me love networks/security more and more.
I am giving a donation by the end of this week.
Thank you Team GNS3, GNS3, community members, and everyone who spent a minute improving this magical software.
But please, there are some critical bugs that need to be addresses in the next release. Like the issue of lost config! this one is frustrating.
Thank so much.
