If he's going to run his system it on a PC loaded with NICs, then he
may as well just run Debian or Ubuntu or some other desktop distro.
It won't come with a GUI that sets up his multi-WAN network with a few
clicks, but the user communities are much better, and someone [1] will
be able to help him with the handful of configuration settings he'll
need to get started.  Long-term, a regular desktop distro is going to
be easier to maintain than a more specialized router-oriented distro
like OpenWRT, pfsense or shorewall.
