Well I code a lot in erlang, and I'm tired to have it using only once
core due to the big lock. This mostly due to this reason I would say
and maybe virtualization when I need it. For the rest, i would really
prefer to keep with openbsd with all the simple tools it have. Even
wireless config is easier (only one command: ifconfig)

I may try a debian, debian 6 looks good.
