If you are using the FSO API your code should work on images from FSO, SHR or 
Debian. Which is 'best' is really a matter of taste, so try them. You could 
partition an SD card and install all of them. FSO Milestone 5.1 and SHR-
testing are probably the versions to go for. I don't knnow if there are 
differing versions of debian.
