PC programmable controller of motors.

Has anyone had a go at using a programmable controller? any input would be greatly appreciated.

I'm looking into it for my next project and have been looking down these lines:

which can be controlled either using a simple potentiometer or in multiples using an arduino microcomputer board.

while i haven't yet set a system up i believe it would be possible to write power saving motor contol sofware and using sensors linked to the arduino traction control software would also be posible.
