i concur. mikrotik has quite a colorful hw architecture right now, and extending it with others will just create more tasks for the dev team. i suppose they have enough on their hands now.They will only need to develop against one switch vendors ABI, and get better purchasing power if they are buying SoC and switch ASIC from the same vendor.
That is not important. RouterOS does not rely on the open source components too much. We have Tilera drivers from manufacturer directly. Linux support doesn't matter.Which ASICs mentioned in this thread still have support for linux kernel 3.2.x?
Good. I always thought it would work like this: The vendor provides module X1 for linux kernel 3.x, module X2 for linux kernel 4.x,... So I was wrong.That is not important. RouterOS does not rely on the open source components too much. We have Tilera drivers from manufacturer directly. Linux support doesn't matter.
