Another option is Debian (AG packages available at
http://www.vislab.usyd.edu.au/debian). The main pros are those of
Debian: ease of upgrade (no need to do re-installs), good security
support, large number of supported packages. The main con has
traditionally been the difficulty of installation (this is much better
with the recent beta installers). Also, the next stable release isn't
actually out yet, although it should be soon.
There are also packages available for Slackware, which has good support
and a shorter release cycle if you prefer that.
