Re: the poor orphaned mac pros
Dropping support for the stock 7300 GT graphics on the mac pro is the real killer for a hackintosh mac pro. I am a bit sad about this. My 2007 mac pro is still going strong and doesn't like being marginalised. My next mac pro will be a true hackintosh.
The Cisco sales person gets commission of just under $1m for a sale like that. Pretty big incentive to upsize. Not quite enough to retire on by itself. But throw in other deals and stock etc and I guess it was enough. I think Cisco should have some responsibility for this when dealing with folks who don't know what they need.
Fail for Cisco management not catching this and quoting for a more appropriate system and not taking advantage of the gullible.
