which distro for embedded programming??
I'm looking to get into Linux programming particularly doing embedded applications, maybe even get involved with the open source community. So I'm going to convert my laptop to a dual boot system (Windoze as primary, and Linux as the secondary). There are a lot of choices out there for Linux (Debian, Red Hat, Ubuntu, Fedora, etc). Any suggestions on which Linux to choose??? Is there any one that's better than the other (my gut says No, at least at the low level because they all use the same kernel). My only requirement is that it must be one that is updated every now and then.
I'm leaning towards Ubuntu because 1) I found a tutorial on the web that has shows how to make a dual boot system with it and 2) its updated every 6 months.
But I am open to other suggestions.
