I recently found out about the LFS project and their sub-projects. Is the HLFS Project only for

production-quality servers, routers, and firewalls

or is it also recommended for securing your desktop PC?


According to the HLFS page:

Hardened Linux From Scratch (HLFS) is a project that provides you 
with step-by-step instructions for building your own customized and 
hardened Linux system entirely from source

The project will only be "initially geared towards building production-quality servers, routers, and firewalls" the list you quote from that page. You can extend it with BLFS packages. The BLFS book was updated last September, after 5 years, so is fairly up-to-date.
