Others have made recommendations of distro (and are far better
qualified than I to do so), but one small point to add: Test a mix of
32-bit and 64-bit systems, unless you only support the latter. This is
particularly important with installers and such; installing a 32-bit
library on a 64-bit Linux may mean putting it in a special directory.
