Hi folks, 
I've traditionally been a Cisco Catalyst shop for my switching gear.
I am doing a significant hardware refresh in one of my offices, which will entail replacing about 20 access switches and a couple core devices.  Pretty simple L3 VLAN environment with VRRP/HSRP, on the physical end I have 1G fibre/copper and 10G fibre.  My core switch of choice will likely be the Cat 4500 series.
I'm considering Cisco's Meraki platform for my access layer and I'm looking for deployment stories of folks that have deployed Meraki in the past...good/bad/ugly kinda stuff.
I know Meraki hardcores were upset when Cisco acquired them, but not exactly sure why.
Anyway, any thoughts would be useful.  Thanks!
