Re: Software router state of the art
It would be very useful if there was an effort from the telecom community to develop a dynamic routing frontend like Quagga. The amount of human work that it requires in order to build up a product is enormous. If only someone with millions of dollars could donate engineers. It would allow the deployment of small branch office systems at a much lower cost.
Would you rather deploy a $3000 cisco edge box which is a unexpandable, 100 mbit piece of crap, or throw two $2000 Dell boxes and have a 1 GigE platform?

Last thing to say is, I haven't tried upgrading since Vyatta abandoned the XORP platform and moved to the Quagga platform, but I'm guessing (based on experience w/ Quagga) that they have a lot fewer of these quirks that I've described.
