I just pop up an idea.

Since the OS of linksys Routers and Gateways are Linux based, would it be possible to be hacked and turned into a Linux workstation or servers in addition to its current limited applications.

any openwrt or openslug can be used as a workstation provided you like the command line

there is such thing as a "slug term" that is a 4x20 line LCD and a keyboard. if you want a vt100 terminal that supports bold, underline and italic then you might want to get one of these: http://www.pjrc.com/store/mp3_display_beta.html fonts http://www.pjrc.com/tech/mp3/lcd_fonts.html

to get the bold and underline you need to modify a terminfo entry but it shouldnt be hard, then all you need is a serial keyboard or an adaptor

i have also seen the usb video card used on a slug and running X so it can be used as a thin terminal (great idea IMHO)
