stevek woody: Linux has a few other plus points. Portability between ARM/MIPS/PowerPC (most STBs seem to be one of these 3), allowing you to pick the cheapest core. No royalties at all.

Incidentally the reasons you suggest are why of the last 10 or so STB reference designs that came through our office have had Linux on them (and gcc cross compiling based toolchains).
