[safnog] Freeware/Open Source Software Routers

A few people have suggested to me that my flavour of *nix or *bsd mixed
with my preference of bird or quagga makes for a good software based
router. I've worked with various combinations like this for various
purposes and always found the configuration a little disjointed and
cumbersome - lacking the kind of single config file that we've become
used to on *insert big name vendor*.

Can anyone share experiences on deploying any of the numerous software
based routing platforms. Particularly those that support things like
VLANs/sub-interfaces, dynamic routing (OSPF and BGP) and IPv6.
