Open Souce Network Operating Systems

There's AT&T's dNOS effort[1], though I think that wasn't really targeting 
CPE so much as DC and carrier type WAN gear.  A single platform for DC, 
aggregation, and other SP roles is already pretty ambitious.  Adding CPE 
into the mix as well is another big stretch even beyond that.

It's also more at the "initiative" stage than anything fully fledged,
