Hi, No worries re the acronym.

A lot depends on what you're trying to do.

If its a "device", like an IoT box, maybe look at a Raspberry Pi with it's
own version of Debain (Raspian). Another option - both on a Pi or on X86
hardware would be OpenWRT, it's got a nice configurable web interface and
although designed as a router it can be pretty flexible and has good
support for running additional apps as docker images.

For a user facing X86 PC, pretty much any of the mainstream variants would
work - my daily drive is Fedora, but Debain is pretty popular amongst the
PLUG community and would get a lot of support feedback here.
