Thanks for the info.
I would like to use Opnsense if possible, as its a purpose-built firewall distro. With lots of stuff made readily available out-of-the-box without the added overhead of months of hacking to add every single piece together. If Linux kernel can manage 1gibt traffic on this HW, Freebsd/Hardenedbsd should also handle that similarly. If not really, THEN I will switch, of course.
