IP Routing on 2960

I just noticed in Cisco's latest IOS release that they have enabled ip routing. I just wondered if anybody had tested this and what size sites would you recommend this be used at.

We have got several stub networks which we use 3750's at and most of these do not have anymore than 20 machines. So I was thinking that as a possible cost saving, we could start using 2960's at any new sites and just enable IP routing. What do you guys think?

You are right in that would be a good idea in terms of cost etc. and the 2960 does support connected and up to 16 static routes i believe. However there appears to be a serious bug when you enable routing on these switches and the bug fix release date is scheduled for February next year according to this thread -

so unless you have more up to date information from Cisco i would hold off using them for L3 routing.
