I haven't heard anything about them, but I see that netgear is releasing some
gigabit switches.  As usual, they are much cheaper than current switches from
3com and intel.  The 8-port is about $1000, 16-port $1400, and 24-port $2000. 
It doesn't look anyone will have the 16 and 24 port switches in stock for
another two months.  With a $36 card and $84/port switch, GigE is down to the
price FE was a year ago.
