sell shell accounts?

This is true. But show me a model in which this works and which can update
that forwarding table 20x/second (at full load WHILE switching packets).

That's what Netstar claims.

CISCO can't even *dream* of getting close to this level of performance.

I think I'd be happy if it could update the entire forwarding table
(only) a few times a second, but could switch a few gigabits worth of IP
packets per second.
