Rumor has it that those crazy guys at Cisco are working on a new product
to be sold under the Linksys line that includes some of the cool IOS
features found in the big boy routers - namely QoS and VLANs. The
target market is said to be gamers and pro-sumers. No one I spoke with
would confirm or deny having taken inspiration from the Linux hackers
work on Linksys to date. One thing seems pretty clear though. It will
retain a familiar Linksys idiot-proof GUI and not a Cisco CLI.
Anyway, it is a pretty sure bet that this new product will be beefier,
so no matter what operating system it ships with it will be a great
platform for tinkering.
