Anyone who wants to roll your own more advanced apps on Linux without reinventing the wheel may want to check out my friend's company:
Even with their specialized hardware platform, bus, and extensive tuning, they only get 10Gb/s throughput on the dual or quad 10G modules. However you can do 100,000 line ACLs at that speed. It is built for a different application than core routing. However, an XMR or Sup720 will still be a lot cheaper and give better performance.
