Linksys is dead

CISCOJohn Chambers, CEO of CISCO, the company that bought Linksys in 2003, informed us that the Linksys brand will soon be abandonned in favor of a new line of routers all named CISCO.

The Linksys brand had been around since 1988, it had been kept because it had a higher recognition factor in the small router market and public. But it must no longer be the case and Cisco is pushing for a convergence between all Cisco-branded products.
