I'd say unless you have a specific interest in which hardware we  
should be targetting, I would work with whatever hardware you have  
available.  The beauty of Debian is that it can be just about any  
working computer.  If your software works on Debian/i386 and is  
included in Debian, it will be built for armel, mips, etc. so should  
"just work" on any number of plug computers.

I have always wished for my computer to be as easy to use as my  
telephone; my wish has come true because I can no longer figure out  
how to use my telephone."  --Bjarne Stroustrup (creator of C++)
