Please read this before voting. Kinda surprised no one has made a poll yet. Anyway, this is almost exactly like aTc's post, except with a poll. Here is what he said in his post:
Some other options would/could be:Although everyone seems to assume debian is already decided on, we're still at a stage where we can choose something different.
Even if we do go for debian, there are three different versions of it that we can choose from.
Slightly outdated packages, but very solid.
Problem here is that you might want to use something more up to date, for example, it has xfce4.8, and no sign of qt5.
Not really recommended to use that on anything that's supposed to reliably work.
Basically everything that survives in unstable for a week or two. and doesn't cause any major breakage.
We could however, also go for ubuntu.
Don't panic, that doesn't mean you have to use unity, or any of the other ubuntu insanities.
It'll work the same way as if we were using debian, just with a more stable source of up to date packages (and the new lts 14.04 version is only.. 2 months away
Think more of something like xubuntu/kubuntu than the default ubuntu desktop.
Another advantage ubuntu has, is that it's arm setup is slightly more mature than debian stable.
You get an arm crosscompiler included with the default x86 packages for example (makes doing an cross-sdk a bit easier), and the rest of the arm related tools are more complete too.
- Super Zaxxon
- Arch Linux
- Linux Mint
- Completely new Angstrom based distro
- FreeBSD(or any other BSD version)
