I still prefer linux bridge, because it works without additional daemons.

Many feature are not implemented in OVS (multicast snooping/querier, connection
tracking, 
limited bond modes, iptables, ...), so why is OVS far superior?

I would prefer to have missing bits implemented with linux bridge code.
