    If you can install Arch or Fedora, chances are very good that you could also succeed with Ubuntu.

    I know that Debian has an ARM compatible installation, so that should work quite nicely.
    Ubuntu might be a little more difficult, but at least you would have the same base to work with.

    I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, in Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.

    I know that fedora is the "sanctioned" distribution for PI. You should be able to install another system on it, and port/migrate the required drivers to the kernel for your distribution of choice, with some effort, of course!

    'buntu only support x86 (amd64 and i386), ARM is a work in progress and only for the server release.

    Probably wise to stick with Debian or Fedora.

    I've had good results using Debian on embedded ARM systems myself. I haven't used fedora for ARM development. Gentoo also has support for a number of ARM processors.
