I doubt it will bring anything new AND useful, but could potentially be a whole lot more marketable than the other open source router OS's.

Ultimately it could lead to the majority, rather than minority, of routers in the mass-market supporting third party software with enhanced functionality. Or better yet, coming with it out of the box

I'd much prefer an existing Linux based firewall distribution that has a history and is stable. If I want to play Angry birds I use my phone.
