While I've never jumped on the Linksys bandwagon, I do own one of their wireless routers that I use when I travel to Europe as it has the European adapter. I'm anxiously awaiting their entry into the VOIP space, which as the CNET interview points out, is something they are clearly aiming for.
With their Cisco parent relationship. Linksys has the ability to leverage technology that finds its way into the Enterprise to be carried down to the home/office level. With VoIP this is a crucial step, because no one gets fired for buying Cisco, and that means use at home, for work related telecommuting, the follow on marketing efforts for Linskys through the Cisco channel is only just beginning.
