    I am wanting to build a developement system. I have tried several of the images and each seems to have things missing. Wifi works on some and not on others. Some have software loaded for Arduino some do not. Some the sound works others do not. I want to boot and run from SATA SDD. Why is there so many images? Is there one base image that all the hardware is working and then you can add the packages you want. Why all these variation, makes learning very hard.

    What is the difference between them all?

    the default OSes are: Linaro Ubuntu 12.04 LTS and Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean: http://www.udoo.org/downloads/

    In both of them everything works fine, i strongly suggest you to use one of them:

    - Ubuntu has arduino installed, the sound works fine, you can run the OS from SATA SDD (here for the new gude: http://www.elinux.org/UDOO_boot_from_sata)

    - Android CAN'T have the Arduino IDE installed, the sound works fine but you cannot run the OS from SATA SDD at the moment.

    About the other OSes, they all come up after a few months so they're little bit behind:

    - Debian Wheezy armHF is really fast, you can install the Arduino IDE armHF (link: http://www.udoo.org/install-the-arduino-ide-hfp/), the sound doesn't work but you can boot from SATA SDD using the same guide as Ubuntu.

    - Ubuntu Studio 12.04 armHF is quite slow, the wifi doesn't work and has some other problems. We're working to improve the distro.
