I ordered a RB and I plan to install openWRT for a research project.
I will use a custom implementation of the transport layer, and I'm afraid that RouterOS is not open enough to let me play with its sourcecode.
Anyhow I'm worried about losing some key functionality while switching OS, thus handicapping my HW.
What does routeros offer over OpenWRT, or linux in general, apart from a very beautiful interface?
Is there any key HW/SW feature which I would lose switching to OWRT?
