I'll go down the list to give a quick overview where possible.

FSO is a framework distribution. It is not actually related to debian 
specifically. Debian made its port of the armv4 branch compatible and 
added the FSO packages to make it run on the FR. FSO can actually be run 
as it's own system without Debian installed.

OM200X.Y are distributions focused more on creating the UI for the 
phone. If it can be done in FSO it might not be in OM and vice-versa.

The other distributions haven't come up in this thread so I'll not add 
any additional confusion by talking about any other software for the phone.
