This is plain crazy. I mean, when the current software wars are being fought for control over the internet and cross platform applications, Cisco buys out a windows-only product and that too for billions !
Someone is laughing all the way to the bank. I have used webex and yes, it is indeed a good product. But, as mentioned in that article, there are much cheaper and better alternatives out there.
This is an interesting counter-argument to the acquisition game !
Speaking of acquisitions, Microsoft's buy out of TellMe seems to be on target. I think it would be interesting to see what Google's move would be now !
Update : Obviously enough, Google has indeed moved. Check Here for more !
