Re: Zebra/linux device production networking?

You actually have several issues: * use a regular PC instead of big and expensive iron, * use Linux instead of FreeBSD or IOS or JunOS, * use Zebra instead of Quagga or Xorp. These questions are partly independent and should be addressed as such. For instance, Quagga + a free Unix can run on dedicated boxes like the Soekris, who have different characteristics than a regular PC (no moving parts, for instance). One last advice: be very careful when you read claims like "it may seem appealing to suits with no networking knowledge": many people never tried what they criticize, they just do not want their CEO to discover that the expensive network could have been done for much less. [I installed, in a former job, Debian + Linux + Zebra on PCs and they route fine.]
