How widespread would you say the use of IS-IS is?
Even more as to which routing protocols are used, not just in ISPs, what
percent would you give to the various ones. In other words X percent of
organizations use OSPS, Y percent use EIGRP, and so on.

As some of you may know, I occasionally teach networking to college
students and I frequently encounter misconceptions about some aspect
of networking that can take a fair amount of effort to correct.
For instance, a topic that has come up on this list before is how the
inappropriate use of classful terminology is rampant among students,
books and often other teachers. Furthermore, the terminology isn't
even always used correctly in the original context of classful addressing.
I have a handful of common misconceptions that I'd put on a top 10
list, but I'd like to solicit from this community what it considers to
be the most annoying and common operational misconceptions future
operators often come at you with.
I'd prefer replies off-list and can summarize back to the list if
there is interest.
