Take a look at this list.  These folks are putting a commodity Linux environment 
with binary drivers to merchant silicon switches.  Right now they support 
Accton, Agema, Penguin Computing and Quanta.

Arista without the price tag? :)


Even without the linux distro these switches are probably cheap and usable with 
their default OS.

Hey NANOG, it's good to be back and has been quite a while since I lurked on 
this list.  Greetings from the bottom of the Earth (-70F outside my building).
