This is my expectation as well.I think there's a high risk that some architectures/platforms will be stuck on ROS v6 for flash-size and toolchain reasons. v7 will probably be ARM and x86_64 only, and will probably lack some features thats simply not portable (I guess MPLS- and tunnel stuff).
Most high performance packet forwarding is done in user space!
One of the selling points is performance. Especially on embedded devices userspace is not okay.
It's only one month until the EU MUM. Maybe they will announce some 802.11ax gear.You can buy 802.11ax routers on the shelf in retail stores already, yet zero communication from Mikrotik about their timeline... this is rather worrying.
I gave up betting on RouterOS v7 release dates many years ago after incurring significant lossesMe too. I bet Europe MUM
Which other routers are stackable ?Hi!
I think you first need to learn how to make stackable hardware.
Mikrotik have had that same ad up for the last 10 years...Maybe. And maybe there are few programmers...Maybe the devs are on holiday.
+1I think Mikrotik should just make a version with the 98DX3336 and 128MB storage and call it a router if they want.
