10G-capable customer router recommendations?

Conversely, the UI is Mikrotik's big draw. :-) 

Being or not being like CIsco has zero bearing on me. Assuming the commands do what they say they'll do, any platform with tab complete is fine. :-)

Does that lanner even do SFP+? Dont see it listed in the specs. Looks like 4210 has 
2x SFP+, though their 'performance' level products look more in line with 'useful'. 


As for the microtics, wonky user interface, so very unciscolike (i guess thats 
my problem - but the GUI thing feels like a toy), but for their midrange models I found 
their bgp convergence times pretty poor on their low end cpus... 

What do you put on the lanner? OpenBGPd? Quagga? Also looking for a 10G solution 
here, low power (than a full ASR stack..) is my goal for 5-6 full bgp feeds.
