Am I the only person who has heard of Google?

It didn't take me long to find this wiki page
for an Opensource Intrusion Detection System that lists 
various 10G cards for Linux and a couple of FPGA cards 
so that you can roll your own ASICs. Anyway, this one
has two ports and claims to reach 8.8 Gbps with 1500 byte

People rolling their own router are not the only ones who
want to do 10G on Linux.
