Over on Google news I read a headline that speculates about Cisco buying Nokia. As I recall Nokia owns a chunk of f5. I am interested in hearing others' opinions about the implications for f5 and FFIV.

The most direct effect would seem to be that Cisco would either sell FFIV which would drive it down, or buy FFIV which would drive it up. But considering that Cisco's focus is on Nokia and that f5 is a side issue, it still seems that such a large firm as Cisco would consider such details.

My hope has always been that f5 remain independent.

Well, at this stage things are largely rumor anyway, but I will watch the ticker more diligently over the next few days.
