CISCO and Microsoft work together

My spin: CNET is reporting that Cisco Systems and Microsoft will begin selling bundles of their lower-priced networking equipment to small businesses in April, the two companies announced Wednesday.
The first combination is a Cisco ethernet broadband router, meant for companies of fewer than 20 employees, and Microsoft’s Small Business Server 2003 Standard Edition, which is itself a combination of the Windows Server operating system and Microsoft’s Exchange e-mail server software. Included in the deal is integration support and software so router and server can work together.

What does this mean for the end users? Nothing much really, except you might save some money and it might be easier to upgrade your office network.
