I agree that Linux can be used, but I thought that it was only used
with PCs and not dedicated routers (ie, embedded systems). Is this not
true? Our topic was supposed to be mainly on embedded systems, so we
didn't devote much attention to using PCs as routers.

Beware of terminology. "Embedded systems" includes "embedded PCs". I know of
a fair few routers that are i386 architecture running e.g. FreeBSD (there
are other Unices than Linux).
