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.
