[nycbug-talk] OT: Juniper or Cisco Switches?

Setting up a new network and looking into switches.

So far considering Cisco and Juniper.
For example
Cisco Small Business 300 Series Managed Switch SG300-52 - switch - 52 ports

Juniper EX 2200 48T - switch - 48 ports - managed - desktop

Price wise the Cisco seems like a better deal, but I am trying to make sure 
whatever I recommend will play nice with FreeBSD+LAG.

Also, how about ease of learning? I don't consider myself a "network 
person", but right now I will be the one setting up whatever switches we 
get. And of course networking is neither my primary role, nor what I am 
expected to spend most of my time.... but I will have to manage the network 
for the foreseable future.
