The new 10G switches look interesting, until I read that they have only 16 Megabytes of flash. I really like the partitioning feature. It's useful. But this new trend of starving the device of flash is really a turn-off; it makes partitioning useless.
I can understand trying to cut costs on a low end $30 access-point. But I think it's a poor strategy on the higher end devices. I won't notice a difference between a $435 switch and a $430 switch. But I do notice a difference between a switch with 128MB of flash and one with 16MB. I don't buy the latter.
