Stop Using the OSI Model – rule 11 reader

Agreed. Stop using the OSI model. Switch to the TCP/IP model!

Third, the OSI model focuses on what each layer does from the perspective of an application, rather than focusing on what is being done to the data in order to transmit it. The OSI model is built “top down,” rather than “bottom up,” in other words. While this might be really useful if you are an application developer, it is not so useful if you are a network engineer.
