I propose we look at three alternatives for our default distribution:

1) Use a slightly modified default Debian setup similar to what I created, plus the utilities we have developed (basiccheck, modem drivers, etc)

2) Add and remove packages from our current freekbox 3 to attain the functionality in the default Debian install, but keep the basic plan the same.

3) Convert to Ubuntu.
