Correct me if I'm wrong:
If you want to build a PDA or a smartphone OE might be cool, but
otherwise it's overkill...

With Buildroot you can also build professional systems with very
advanced user-interface (by using Qt over framebuffer for example).
They will "only" need 32MBytes of RAM, fit on 16MBytes FLASH and boot in
less that 10 seconds. I'm not sure that OE can generate the same without
deeply hacking the beast.
