Phew... thanks for relieving me.  Mikrotik does have their problems, indeed. 
With each new update, sometimes new bugs are added.  But, having used it for 
some time now, and extensively, we've had to learn how to adapt our 
requirements to Mikrotik's abilities.

The biggest benefit that we find is, it uses Linux's powerful iptables and 
related TCP / IP software, and provides a very nice GUI, which is easy to 
teach to my techies for monitoring / basic config.
