I still needle my Cisco rep about that from time to time.  IMHO, the 
6500/7600 split was one of the dumbest, most poorly thought-out decisions 
Cisco ever made.  That and they still haven't given me the warm-and-fuzzy 
about the plans for IOS licensing.

Where I work, we're heavily invested in 6500s in the core and I don't see 
that changing any time soon.  The borders are Junipers because they 'just 
plain work' :)
