Does anyone know where I can find a definitive list of switches that work with DSC? I would be particularly interested in any SOHO / Desktop switches that work with DSC.

I had heard that certain Microsoft branded / approved networking devices worked with DSC 🙂 This Slashdot article hints at it:

Ah. So, you're only going to find OMI in a managed switch, not a cheaper unmanaged desktop device. And I'm not aware of any master compatibility list; in theory, any switch supporting OMI should work, although you may have to write custom resources if the vendor hasn't done so.
