They have several.  Until recently, linksys boxes were based on Linux.  But 
their most recent generation of hardware has half as much memory and half as 
much flash as previous versions, and they went with vxworks instead to fit in 
the smaller footprint.  (The link I gave mentions some of this...)

Ask Erik, he used to track this kind of thing when he had more time.  (I 
believe his wife was using a modified linksys router with a distro he put 
together, but this is secondhand and a while ago...)
