To put this in perspective, 550 employees is .008% (rounded up) of Cisco's total workforce. Most, if not all, will find other jobs within the company if they want to stay.

Ah monopoly capitalism at its finest.  I think they need more tax breaks.

The US has the second highest corporate tax rate in the world. The problem is that any company large enough keeps most of their assets outside of the US. They do this because they aren't stupid. If our tax rates were competitive with, say, France, you'd see more of those assets move back to the US where they can be taxed by our government, instead of someone else's.

 

Would you rather have 0% or 30%?

I bought a WRT54G2 a few years back and after hooking it up, I was amazed that I couldn't access the router directly for the initial setup.  I had to install the software from the disc, along with all the crap offer software and nagware, for the initial setup of the router, then remove it all.

I was sorely disappointed and surprised Cisco/Linksys would have left their more experienced crowd flapping in the wind for the sole purpose of walking regular users through the setup (give me an expert/I know what I'm doing option!) and the chance to sell some monthly subscription crap.

I'm glad I don't care about using Linksys products at home.
