I have to say that looks very promising as a testbed vehicle. Perhaps
down the road a candidate for
a head-end solution... or a corporate edge gateway.

I also spoke to an intel rep at linuxcon
that mentioned a rangeley board with 10GigE capability onboard.

Have you contacted habeyusa?

That also.

Well, in both cases the boards lack a video interface so booting them
for the first time would be a pain.

Does anyone know of a good pcie 10gig capable fiber card (dual or
single port) and SFP+ single mode (20km) interface?
