The newer routers aren't appealing.
Since the days of the WRT54G running Linux and the WRT54GX routers their units haven't been too appealing, and the firmware has started to get rather iffy. Linksys still makes decent routers, but they definitely have lost the luster that gave them preference over Netgear, D-Link, Belkin, etc. The new UFO-style routers have the tendency to overheat and the lack of external antennas makes them less useful, unless you want to get into drilling, cutting and soldering to make externals.
None the less, if Linksys is sold let's hope the buyer is able to make some solid units that bring back the good days of Linksys. ASUS and other router designers are spanking them.
