Well,its up to you Ben.
Anyway,in my studio,we use a system called AHP to make a selection from different choices.
We first pick the requirements,and ranked it. Then we compare each alternative (in our case,the based distribution,ubuntu or else) in each or requirement.
At the end,we pick the alternative with the highest score.
So..what are the requirement for the webian based? Portability,active community,stability,scalability,wayland support or else?
Maybe we should discuss these first.?
If u interested with the AHP I can send u the template.
i think arm architecture will play more important role on the near future.
so,if webian want to select its core,support for arm should be considered.
today,arm based laptop.is still rare, but i think when windows 8 come out.we will have more choices.
if webian release timeframe is close to win 8, then we really should considered ARM.
Just curious..can we apply some kind of developer version of ARM board from Nvidia maybe, or Qualcomm?
Right now, maybe we can use Asus eee transformer as a development platform. The form factor can be use for testing the usability of the UI design.
If you think we should go with x86 first, thats ok with me. just prepared the system to able ported easily to ARM in the near future.
I have the Nvidia Tegra 2 dual core
