Well, with the new Juniper entry level MX devices out now, the cost
difference between Vyatta and Juniper is probably insignificant now,
and with Juniper devices, you have much higher PPS rate.

Granted, I have Vyatta devices now doing BGP, and they work fine, but
you can't argue that ASICs can forward much faster than a general
purpose CPU  :)

To each their own
