Select any random distro, and you basically cannot go wrong, unless you have very specific requirements.

I'm running Raspbian x86 in some VMs and also on some "few year old" and some 8+ year old laptops. Anything that has "programming" as the first option in the start menu gets a big thumbs up from me.

The Raspberry Pi is a great little machine. I'm writing dashboard apps that hook up to various databases and display tons of information about how business is going (services delivered, cancelled, income, expenses, customer feedback, etc), and run these on Raspberry Pi's hooked up to big TVs.
