Yes, dreams come true and you can launch distributed coffee machine:
I don't know exactly what can it do, perhaps some failure tolerance:
dishwasher will help to finish cappucino.

This board is shipped with plain Ubuntu (ancient, but working).

150$ is a big price, but it is for a big development board with many
peripheral hardware and 1 GB of RAM (!).
If you know where to go to make hardware, it is possible to buy small
chip for 20$: http://www.iwavesystems.com/i.MX53.htm and use its
pinout to connect to peripheral.

This box with other ARM cpu: http://www.raspberrypi.org/ is almost the
same, but less powerfull and without some features like hardware H.264
And it is much, much cheaper.
