for wireless and router, openwrt fits well. for handheld if you dislike Android/meego you can use poky/OE. for general in-house build you can use buildroot or run-your-own. for high end embedded product you have debian/gentoo, i still failed to see the big advantage of this project, though the more the merrier.

Debian will give you not optimized stuff unless you will rebuild everything which will take you weeks due to "only native builds" requirement.
Ok, you can use Buildroot or write your own system but OE has 7 years now - do you really have a time to solve all problems which got solved by their developers?
And when it comes to UI I agree - Sato does not look impressive. But this is not the only one in OpenEmbedded. You can get GPE, E17, XFCE, GNOME and few other environments working.

Poky is all about being able to create custom yet reproducible builds, we added a bunch of features in 0.9 to make the system more reliable which ended up costing us in build time.
We'll fix this in 1.0 with better initial build speed through bitbake and pseudo optimisations as well as faster subsequent builds through improved shared state.
