RouterOS only works on PC and RouterBOARD. Nothing else.

It is my opinion that

It would be too crazy-cool if we saw RouterOS running on a non-mikrotik hardware. If this happens, it would be a "replica" (would involve heavy soft-mod) like the fake smart-phones.

MikroTik like to tie their OS with their hardware so they would sell and support the products in a better quality way.

A better idea would be for a person to get involved with the OpenWRT project and help develop what he needs.
This looks slow and hard.

A faster approach is to buy all MikroTik hardware and software and run RouterOS on x86 including min-ITX.
This would save a lot of trouble and give more benefits.

Have a nice day :)

From my experience, anything that went "more open" became buggier and less supported too. That's why I always liked using dedicated "closed" products like MT, Cisco and the rest. :)

YES,OPEN Means more market place!.maybe Mikrotik profit come down for a little while,but the market will become twice bigger or more in the future!

I guess some body will work on this project!

I hope Mikrotik will stay as it is now.
This company proved that open source is not the only way.
I use open source stuffs now too, but thats not the only way that good.
Mikrotiks's quality is granted by they developers and their care about their property: the software.
