Personally, I'm at least as intrigued by the IOS replacement as by the 
high-speed hardware -- when will that percolate to the rest of the 
product line?  As with any major new software product, it will probably 
be less reliable at first, but -- given the design goals -- quite 
likely much more reliable in the not tremendously distant future.
