My 2 off-topic cents:

Personally I have a XORP machine running full table BGP (IPv4) and 
testing BGP+ on IPv6 (http://www.xorp.org).

Nothing against quagga, zebra & co but none of them has architectural, 
functional or performance highlights.
Basically all of them are "lets add some routing functionality to the 
OS" modules.
XORP is designed as a router from the beginning on.
And for general happiness it runs on free,net and openBSD beside linux.

Of course it needs more place but some guys are already stripping down a 
system to be used on embedded platforms.
It is the only real opensource alternative to Cisco and Juniper.
