 From what I've heard the 3Com/Tipping Point move will be a good thing. 
  I personally believe 3Com has learned from previous acquisitions, and 
will treat Tipping Point as a separate unit - the result should be 
better funding for R&D and aggressive sales goals to turn the profits... 
but that's just my opinion; we'll have to wait and see.  I imagine the 
core group that made things as good as they are now will have some 
attractive retention bonuses.
