From the FSF own press release

Cisco purported compliance with the (FSF's interpretation of the) GPL is
supposed to happen "in the fastest way possible". May I just speculate
that Cisco's position regarding "the fastest way possible" spells as
"forever impossible"? Feel free to provide verifiable evidence to the
contrary. The fact is that you can't.

As the FSF itself stated, Cisco already maintains a GPL page for its
products, <>, with a
host of GPLed source code to download for its various products. The
concern was with the timeliness of Cisco's compliance with the GPL for
new products and for response to written requests.

So there's no question that Cisco agrees that it should comply with the
GPL. You can only bitterly hope that despite the fact that they attempt
to comply with the GPL, they secretly despise it and will deliberately
take steps to not honor the settlement.

That speaks volumes about you, not about Cisco.
