I agree.

Linux on the ps3 is very useful for people doing research and doing number-crunching, but I agree that cooler examples would be:
- most current NAS devices and routers that run linux and have very interesting features (usb ports, included print server, bittorrent client)
- things like the TomTom GPS's, and some motorola phones where you're using linux, and most users never even notice it
- the openmoko freerunner, a truly open linux phone
