Re: Time to lose gen1 OS detection?

Then gen2 system still only has 827 fingerprints compared to 1684 in
gen1.  But the new system has better fingerprints, and for more recent
and relevant system.
That's a pretty good reason. Gen1 has much more signatures and more
importantly, it has signatures for old systems. Those signatures are not
likely to be submitted again and usually finding very old boxes and
being able to identify them is quite interesting.
