Huh? What's wrong with using a Unix box as a router? I know of a bunch
used that way perfectly well. Unless you want very high throughput, they
work just fine. And if you do, I guess you also have the budget to go
along with those requirements, and will hardly even think about playing
around with meagre VAXen. :-)
Anyway, I'd expect performance using a Unix box (even a VAX) to work
better than something which has anything from MS involved in it.
