I second this suggestion. Raspbian is based on Debian. There's also
Raspuntu, and other distros.

But I wonder about the chains of authentication from Debian packages to
their Raspbian versions. It's probably much better than with *WRT, yes?

I've also seen recent discussion on cypherpunks@xxxxxxxxxx about
security issues, such as chip design, bugs, sources of randomness, etc.
