Binand's point that it has all come down to how the company wants to
market a product is the truth.
For e.g. Cisco's highest end 'switch' is the Catalyst 6500. It does
L3 as well, ofcourse, and is called a Switch-Router. The *same* box,
loaded with a different IOS feature set (routing protocols and stuff),
is marketed as the 7600 router. The Catalyst 6500 is where the switch
and router lines of Cisco converge.
This switch router convergence business takes some time getting used
to. It drives Cisco engineers, support staff and customers nuts...
