I've used Mikrotiks for everything except BGP, but we don't use 
Mikrotiks for BGP only because we already had BGP on a different 
platform...personally, when it comes to BGP, I think people are better 
off running it on devices they are familiar with rather then trying to 
learn the idiosyncrasies of a new platform.
