Debian is definitely great, but it has a big disadvantage on the FR:
Last time I checked, you couldn't even install debian on the internal
flash. You had to use a rather big SDcard.
I use shr-lite instead. With phone & gps software and a couple of games,
I still only use 42% of the internal flash. The SDcard I use
is for roadmaps and music only. I don't need it just to make calls. I
can replace that card whenever I want to.
Debian is perfect when you have a few gigabytes, or more. I use it on
servers, big laptops and tiny minimalist laptops. But debian is not what
you want to cram into 100MB, at least not today.
