I've done my share of Cisco bashing in the past - but I have to say
that 6500/7600 worked pretty well as peering routers at my previous
employer. Great capacity, hardware forwarding, hardware ACLs and
policing. Handled Gbps sized DDoS attacks just fine.

6500/7600 as MPLS PE routers is another story altogether...
