I just bought some Catalyst 3560-X switches that came with IOS 12.2(55)SE3 on them. I'm definitely a proponent of not fixing things that aren't broken when devices are in production, but I was going to at least upgrade to 12.2(58)SE2 before deployment to ensure I have the latest bugfix release in this version tree.
I noticed that 15.0(1)SE2 was also available, so for grins I compared the two versions in the feature navigator. As it turns out there aren't any feature differences between the two and the memory requirements are the same.
For most software the higher version numbers mean more features or better compatibiliity or somesuch. With IOS--at least with this comparison--that doesn't seem to be the case. Why are these two releases the same, and why would I or would I not want to put the 15.0 image on my switches before deployment? Why did Cisco decide to preinstall 12.2 instead of 15.0?
Sometimes I just don't understand Cisco's version numbering or IOS version selection for their products.
