I recently out about these. There is a myriad of linux router distros out there. Since I found out I find the idea really cool on the pretty shallow basis MOAR POWAR, although I do not need it. My current router is a netgear 3700. I have an intel core 2 duo 6300 1.86ghz little system that does not do much right now. Say I were to put a nice wireless card for wireless internet and a couple dual port gigabit cards I would have something a heck of a lot more powerful than my netgear 3700. I would imagine the OS I would choose out of the many out there would have more features than my current router. I imagine I could make an all in one wireless router, nas, and media server. I feel I might be imagining too much so please feel free to burst my bubble.
