I will have to disagree with you there on it's software.

Easier sure, but less flexible and less powerful, which are often trade offs.

I find the airport utility software is kind of a pain since it is missing some advanced configs.
It's pretty easy for simple stuff, which as a consumer device is I guess the target audience, but is lacking compared to even my FIOS actiontec router as far as flexibility.

It does have nice time control (which I find a bit cumbersome UI) which I have implemented for my kids network access shutting off at night, though now with their iPhones, its not stopping them :)

(however as I used to work writing network management software I guess I have higher expectations than most)

Anyway still a nice product, and one of the first with guest networks I was aware of on the consumer side. They will be missed.
