It depends entirely on what board you purchase and what kind of development you'll be doing.

As much as I tout Ubuntu for recreational use, I do NOT recommend Ubuntu for embedded.

Beagle boards are good for starters, ARM processors. There are versions of the board which have serial, USB, network interfaces, maybe even video so that you can hook up a monitor if you add extra hardware.

First you should search proper about Embedded Linux Distributions, take a look at here.

Then you should search for board according to your requirement.
