From the Register:

Many rank-and-file Cisco employees are questioning the ethics of a sweetheart deal in which senior Borg enjoying a leave of absence have sold a skunk-works company, AYR Networks, back to the Collective for a cool $113 million stock swap.

"sweetheart deal"? "Skunkworks"? C'mon guys, get with it. Cisco pays smart people to develop product they like. Then they (Cisco) buy the product. Cisco is smart. You guys sound like a bunch of Joe Six-packs with nothing better to do but complain about something you know nothing about.
