Default openBSD on routerboard

Hello,
I am not so new in unix and openBSD world, but now I want to do something new (at least, it's new for me). I want to install and use OpenBSD on some "routerboard" device. I didn't buy any device yet, so I need some advices, i.e. what hardware devices/manufacturers are OK? Mikrotik is very popular manufacturer, so do you have any experience in Mikrotik devices ?

Thanx

Your best bet is to search through archives of the project's official misc@ mailing list before purchasing any motherboard. Information on archive sites can be found at the following:

Nope, however, I personally use a number of ALIX systems for various special purposes. OpenBSD runs fine on these systems, & they are moderately cheap.

Given that you have not divulged what you want to use this new system for, it will be hard for anyone to give you any more specific advice other than to point you to studying misc@ first.
