Are there any Linux distributions the team recommends?
I have no inside knowledge but I would expect Debian/Ubuntu to be the default just because it always is. I would love if they did something like the Tor project where there’s a slight incentive to run uncommon software (BSD, less popular distros not based on RPM or DEB packages). That would be an easy way to minimize the likelihood of one bug taking down the whole network, and support us software enthusiasts at the same time
I may end up packaging everything for NixOS if it’s not too hard.
