    We just got a couple of new 6509's, and they shipped with catos
    6.4.23. This didn't make sense to me since 8 has been shipping for a
    few years. Yet, I checked cisco's download site, and sure enough
    6.4.23 was released December 21, 06, and 8.5.8 was released December
    5, 2006. The image size for 6.4 is quite a bit less that 8.5, but new
    switches came with 6.4. Is 6.4 a new train or something?

    Cisco still runs 6.4 train for CatOS, along with new 8.4 and 8.5 versions.
    It is lacking some new features, but virtually has less bugs and caveats.

    Good luck,
