Perhaps for 'middleware' where the Arudino interfaces to external inputs and sends the data on for processing/storage/displaying but that wasn't what Gary was after; rather something that interfaces devices with a nice frontend in one box - to do that with an Arduino would be like pissing in the wind especially as software already exists for *nix platforms and RPi gives you everything you need for 30 (or less if you get away with the 'A' model or 'Zero').

Arduino's have their uses but this isn't one of them, plus it gets expensive once you start adding various shields.

Bit of a moot point if the device is/needs to be running continuously
