Ya, pretty much what Theo said...

I'd rather be running *BSD on ANY platform rather that running some proprietary mikrotik garbage.

Yes there are reports of stability with other O.S however subtle 
hardware/firmware bugs appeared on several OpenBSD releases.
I’m actually in the other boat when it comes to hardware stability being an 
excuse however openbsd'd excellent embedded footprint does well at disclosing 
subtle hardware issues.
I’m currently running a MikroTik 2011UiAS that is built on A mips processor. 
Quite honestly I’ve found the secret of stability on the network hardware arena 
to be distinct/discrete hardware.

B.T.W im currently running a 6.2 DB on a Dell GX620 & things are stable.

The Edgerouter 6 is going to be coming out shortly, that is what I am
holding out for to run my home network on.

Just curious, why this and not amd64 bit with something like the
pcengine apu2 board? I know it only has three NICs, so it's likely a
non-started for the OP, but it's 64bit amd.

I don't know the MSRP of the ER6. Do you?

Because I don't like amd64 and avoid it when possible. I like the idea
of having a niche architecture for my internet facing machines.
niche archs are nice, but if you do not have code of firmware to see what's its 
doing inside, then it's kind of meaningless.
PC Engines can provide you with their coreboot modified sources if you like to 
see them...
