A Mini/McDATA Adventure?

Apparently one in 6 cars sold by BMW is a mini. It is amazing to see how they have taken a classic but fading brand and completely re-invented it into a cool and desirable product. McDATA have just released an upgraded version of their i10K product, branded the i10K Xtreme. This finally brings 4Gb/s speed and VSAN/LPAR technology allowing resources in a single chassis to be segmented for improved managability and security. I understand that the Brocade acquisition of McDATA is proceeding at a pace. It will be interesting to see how McDATAs new owners will treat their own McDATA "mini" going forward.
