Down the road, apache or ngix might be an option but certainly not a requrement. Of course, a well maintained kernel is assumed; with 2.6 minimum and 3.x preferred.

linuxguy wrote:Optional support for NFS (client and server) would be great.
Support for ext4 is preferred but not required. Use of ext2 and/or squashfs for /boot is acceptible.
Optional support for iptables and general routing/filtering.
linuxguy wrote:Oh ya, of the two devices above, which would you prefer and why? This sound like a good fit for this class of device? BTW, which ARM series are the CPUs in those devices?
linuxguy wrote:Lastly, is there a resource which speaks to which distributions are available? Which package management tools they use? Which CPU variants are supported? Which ones are well maintained and active?
If this sounds like a good match, links to conversion/installation howtos would be great.
